A wave of 4 Israeli missiles were launched toward Damascus International Airport and were successfully intercepted by SyAAD; without any hits being recorded. This is according to a statement by the SAA.

A second larger wave followed targeting several locations including an Air Defense regiment and number of SAA points in an attempt to distract SyAAD batteries from the original target; all of which were foiled and intercepted successfully.
Two large explosions were heard, one near the ***th Regiment [censored for security reasons] and it was a failed SyAAD missile that detonated on the ground shortly after launch in an empty land just outside the Regiment’s main entrance; the second was near Damascus International Airport which was due due intercepting a low flying missile.
No targets were hit whatsoever, and no jets entered the Syrian Airspace; the initial reports of a possible jet shot down are inaccurate.
