In a statement carried on the official news agency SANA, the military said several missiles were launched just after midnight from an area near Lake Tiberias that fell in the vicinity of the Mezzeh military airport on the western edge of the capital. It did not say whether there were any casualties.
The bombarding led to fire at the Mezzah airport, but there have been no reports of casualties yet. The state television had earlier reported that several rockets had hit the airport compound and ambulances were rushed to the spot.

It was the third such Israeli strike into Syria recently, according to the Syrian government. Earlier in December, the Syrian government reported that Israel fired surface-to-surface missiles that also struck near Mezzeh airport. A week earlier, SANA said Israeli jets fired two missiles from Lebanese airspace toward the outskirts of Damascus, in the Sabboura area.
