DAMASCUS (Sputnik) - Flights to and from Damascus International Airport were suspended following an Israeli attack on the air harbour on Friday morning, a source said.
Syrian Airlines, in turn, said that flights were suspended due to the shutdown of technical equipment.
Earlier in the day, the Syrian defence ministry said that Israel had fired missiles towards a number of targets south of Damascus. According to the authority, Syrian air defence systems shot down most of the missiles, but one civilian was injured in the attack.

Israel's May Strike on Damascus Airport Was Reportedly Intended to Prevent Arms Deliveries From Iran
Since the start of a civil war in Syria in 2011, Israel is believed to have been carrying out regular airstrikes against what it describes as "Iran-backed forces in Syria" potentially capable of attacking Israel. The previous airstrike took place near Damascus on 21 May, claiming the lives of three people. On 13 May, five people were killed during an airstrike in central Syria. On 27 April, another Israeli airstrike in Damascus left ten militants, including six Syrian soldiers, dead.
