"At 11:15 before midnight Israeli warplanes coming from Al-Jalil area launched many missiles towards Damascus area and our air defenses intercepted them and downed majority", a Syrian military source told SANA.

Syrian forces shot down seven Israeli missiles with Russia-made Pantsir and Buk air defense systems on Sunday, TASS news agency reported, citing a spokesman for Russia's national defense management center. Russia's Ministry of Defense, according to RIA news agency, said four Israeli jets fired seven missiles at the global airport, causing no injuries to Syrian nationals.

The projectile was sacked shortly after Syrian state media said Israel conducted a rare daylight missile attack in and around Damascus.
