Militants fighting against the Syrian government have fired two rockets at Damascus International Airport, sparking a massive fire at the facility.
According to Syria’s official news agency, SANA, the rockets hit an out-of-service commercial plane and a fuel dump.
“One rocket hit a kerosene tank and the other hit a parked commercial aircraft, badly damaging it,” the agency said on Friday, adding that the fire had been extinguished.
It also said the attack did not affect the flights and that the traffic at Damascus International Airport was “normal.”
