Syrian media reported on Thursday evening that Israeli aircraft carried out an air strike in the Damascus area.

The reports said the country’s anti-aircraft systems had been activated against what was described as "hostile targets" over Damascus.

The Syrian regime said that some of the targets were intercepted by the defense system.

A Syrian military official said the defense systems intercepted several missiles fired from the Golan Heights.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the attack attributed to Israel targeted a weapons warehouse and weapons shipment in the Damascus Airport area.

Israel’s policy is not to comment on such incidents.

Last week, an air strike in Damascus attributed to Israel targeted an outpost used by an Iranian militia.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the air strike killed 23 Syrian and non-Syrian fighters aligned with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad's regime.

Last month, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that at least three people were killed in an air strike on Iranian-aligned targets in Syria allegedly carried out by the Israeli Air Force.
