SYRIA DENIES FOREIGN ATTACK ON AIRBASE WEST OF DAMASCUS

DAMASCUS, Syria, The Syrian army denied reports that an Israeli missile attack targeted a Syrian airbase west of Damascus, early Sunday, saying a short circuit caused an explosion in an arms depot near the airbase, according to state TV.

The statement of the Syrian army comes, less than an hour after at least two explosions were heard at the Mazzeh airbase, in the Mazzeh neighbourhood, west of Damascus.

The explosions reverberated across the capital, Damascus.

Pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV, and some pro-government activists, in Syria, said, the explosions were the result of a missile attack by Israel on the airbase, which has been previously targeted by Israel.
