"The explosions were accompanied by flashes. believed to be caused regime's air defence launching its missiles to intercept the [Israeli] missiles and prevent them from hitting their targets", the Observatory added.

Syrian air defence systems intercepted three of the missiles, Al-Mayadeen reported. The structures that were damaged appear to be barracks and garages.

"Our air defenses are confronting an Israeli missile attack on one of our sites in the Damascus suburbs and three of the targets were downed", state news agency SANA said, adding the attacks happened at 11:30 p.m. Monday.
