Syrian air defences targeted projectiles fired from the direction of Israeli-occupied territories for the second night in a row, Syrian state media said on Saturday.

The projectiles came from occupied territory into the airspace in southern Syria, state news agency SANA said.

There was no immediate comment from Israel.

Syrian residents said loud blasts echoed across Damascus late on Friday, as Syrian state media reported enemy targets coming from neighbouring Israel.
