A senior Syrian official threatened on Thursday that his country would respond to an alleged Israeli strike on a Hezbollah-operated weapons hub near the Damascus airport.

"The Syrian army and its allies will work to thwart the new Israeli plot on the occupied Golan border and will continue to destroy the enemy's collaborators," the Syrian military source speaking on condition of anonymity told Lebnese newsite el-Nashra.

The Syrian source further claimed that the early morning strike near Damascus had been launched from Israel's Golan Heights. He added that projectile had hit fuel tanks and caused damage, however the airport had not sustained damage.
