Missile strike caused Syria blasts: official in regional alliance

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Blasts heard at the Mezzeh airbase near Damascus were caused by missile strikes targeting the base and by Syrian air defense systems responding, an official in the regional alliance supporting Damascus said on Sunday.

A war monitor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the explosions resulted from Israeli air strikes, and that they caused deaths and injuries.
