DAMASCUS-- Explosions hit in the area of Damascus International Airport in Syria early Thursday morning, with local reports accusing Israel of carrying out an attack. The blasts were followed by a fire in the same place, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor.

Local reports say the airport compound was hit with five strikes at around 3:25 a.m. local time. No injuries have been reported.
