The damage from the strikes was "limited", the news agency noted, without providing any details about possible casualties.

In November 2018, Syrian state media reported that the country's air defences shot down "hostile targets" flying over the town of Kisweh, just south of Damascus, and "were able to foil its goals" despite the "intensity of the aggression".

In an earlier report, SANA had spoken of Syrian air-defence batteries attacking "enemy targets".

According to the military source, the Syrian air defenses were "immediately" engaged overnight after a number of Israeli fighter jets came "from the direction of the Galilee (and) fired several missiles towards the vicinity of Damascus". Explosions were heard in one of the videos.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is cancer
Speculation about her future took on renewed fervor this week after she missed oral arguments for the first time in 25 years. The Supreme Court said at the time she underwent a "pulmonary lobectomy" resulting in the removal of two malignant nodules.

Israel has mounted attacks in Syria as part of its effort to counter the influence carved out there by Iran, which has supported President Bashar al-Assad in the war that erupted in 2011.

The strikes are suspected to have been carried out by Israel and targeted the area surrounding Damascus airport and Al Kisweh region where Iran has heavily deployed proxies and military sites in the past, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. On that occasion an erroneous Syrian anti-aircraft missile flew into Israeli airspace, and was destroyed by Israeli air defenses.

If confirmed, this would be the second round of Israeli strikes in Syria since U.S. announced its intent to withdraw on December 19. Syria's air defense systems have opened fire at air targets over western districts of Damascus, a government-run TV channel reported on Saturday.

An Israeli official said it was Syrian air defenses that endangered the civilian planes, by firing 30 missiles in response to the airstrike.
