BEIRUT - A "massive explosion" was heard near a military airport in the Syrian capital of Damascus on Saturday, a resident said.

"I heard a massive explosion and some smoke rising," said the resident, who lives in the Mezze district of the city near the airport. He said he was not sure what had caused the explosion.

The pro-government Ikhbariya television channel said there was no gunfire in the area, denying a report by Arabic-language satellite channel al-Jazeera, but did not confirm or deny that an explosion had taken place.
