An Israeli missile strike has caused a massive explosion and fire at a military site close to the Damascus International Airport in Syrian Capital, UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights media report.

Missiles had hit a military site southwest of the airport.  The missiles caused explosions and material losses, state TV said. The report blamed Israel for the missile strike.

Israel said the explosion was “consistent” with its policy to prevent Iran smuggling weapons to Hezbollah.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, reported that the powerful blast was heard across the capital at dawn on Thursday and that it was believed to have happened near the main road that leads to the airport.

Civil war broke out in Syria in 2011 after an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad but escalated as militant groups and regional players such as Iran, Turkey Russia and Israel became involved.
