Damascus: Syria on Sunday accused Israel of carrying out air strikes against two government-held areas in Damascus province, one of them near the capital's international airport, state television said.

"The Israeli enemy attacked Syria by targeting two safe areas in Damascus province, namely the Dimas area and the area of Damascus International Airport," said the channel, adding that no casualties were reported.

The Israeli air force and army have launched several strikes against Syrian military positions since the outbreak of the country's revolt in 2011.

The most recent air raid was in March and targeted military positions in the Quneitra region that borders Israel.

There was no immediate reaction to the claim from Israeli authorities.
