Syria’s Damascus International Airport was rocked by explosions Thursday morning with local Arab media blaming it on Israeli airstrike, the Gateway Pundit reports.
Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, confirmed the blast that was heard across the Syrian capital Damascus awaking residents.
At around 3:25 a.m. local time, five strikes reportedly hit the airport compound. No casualties or injuries have been reported due to the blasts.
Reuters reported that the Israeli strike targeted a weapons supply hub operated by terror group Hezbollah near the airport, citing an intelligence source.
The compound is where Iranians send their regular supplies of arms using military and commercial cargo aircraft, the intelligence source said.
When asked if Israel authorized the air strikes at Damascus airport, a spokeswoman for the Israeli military said, “We can’t comment on such reports.”
