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.

The air strike was delivered by four Israeli F-16 fighters from the Mediterranean at 13:32 Moscow time (1032 GMT) against the Duwali international airport in southeastern Damascus, according to TASS.

The airport was not damaged and no casualties were reported, the spokesman said.

Earlier in the day, the official Syrian news agency SANA said the Syrian air defense had intercepted a fresh Israeli missile strike targeting areas in the surroundings of Damascus.

It added that all the Israeli missiles were destroyed before reaching their targets.
