‘Israeli jets’ target Damascus airport warehouse, ‘most’ missiles intercepted – Syrian media

"At 11:15, Israeli fighter jets fired several missiles towards the area of Damascus, and instantly, our air defences confronted the missiles and downed majority", the source told SANA.

"The results of the aggression so far were limited to a strike on one of the warehouses at Damascus airport", the SANA news agency cited a military source as saying.

An unspecified number of the targets were hit, the agency reported, while the Syrian military source said the attack came from Israel. Another official told SANA traffic at the airport had not been disrupted.

Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV said the attack was broader than usual, targeting areas ranging from the eastern Damascus suburb of Dmeir to Al-Kiswah south of capital all the way to the village of Dimas in the west near the Lebanon border.

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

Woman Suffers Rare Medical Condition Rendering her Unable to Hear Men's Voices
The World Health Organization says that about 466 million people around the globe suffer from some form of hearing loss. High-frequency hearing loss , where sufferers are unable to hear the voices of women or children, is more common.

An AFP correspondent in Damascus heard several loud explosions late on Friday, the global news agency said.

Israeli officials made no statement on Friday's reports, but seldom comment on alleged strikes.

The Israeli regime launches airstrikes on the Syrian territory from time to time, aggressive moves usually viewed as attempts to prop up terrorist groups that have been suffering defeats at the hands of Syrian government forces.

A senior Israeli official said in September Israel had carried out more than 200 attacks against Iranian targets in Syria in the last two years. On that occasion an erroneous Syrian anti-aircraft missile flew into Israeli airspace, and was destroyed by Israeli air defenses.

Russian Federation blamed the Israeli military for that incident - a charge rejected by Jerusalem - and has supplied Syria with the advanced S-300 air defense system.
