The Syrian state-run Al-Watan newspaper reported that "Damascus International Airport was subjected to a new Israeli bombardment today."

It said planes arriving in Damascus had been diverted towards Aleppo and Latakia airports.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the Israeli warplanes bombed on Sunday afternoon Damascus International Airport, a day after announcing its return to work, as it targeted the airport's airstrips, which led to its outage again.

He said he heard another explosion from the direction of Mezzeh military airport.

The sources of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed that the Syrian air defense did not respond to the Israeli bombardment.

Damascus International Airport was decommissioned on Oct. 22 when Israeli warplanes launched airstrip raids on the airport.

The raids killed two airport workers, and flights were diverted to Latakia airport at the time.

Since the beginning of this year, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has counted 55 times Israel has targeted Syrian territory.
