The Syrian Ministry of Transport announces suspending incoming and outgoing flights through Damascus International Airport.
Citing sources, Al Mayadeen correspondent said Friday that the Damascus International Airport is expected to resume its operations within 48 hours, after ensuring the safety of the technical equipment and operational movement.
Our correspondent added that communication equipment and towers at the Damascus International Airport were damaged as a result of repeated Israeli aggression, the latest of which was this morning in the vicinity of the airport.
It is worth mentioning that Syrian air defenses intercepted the majority of the missiles, but those that did reach their target injured at least one civilian and caused material damage, according to the official news agency SANA.
This was the second Israeli air raid this week. Syrian state media reported late Monday night that Israeli missiles hit Syrian army positions south of Damascus, causing damage but no casualties.
It is noteworthy that on June 6, the Syrian air defenses confronted Israeli aggression over the southern area of Damascus.
In May, "Israel" bombed the Masyaf area, killing five Syrians in an unjustified and unlawful attack that comes in violation of the country's sovereignty.
