Syria is accusing Israel of launching two airstrikes on it Sunday, one near the Damascus international airport and another near the town of Dimas, close to the border with Lebanon.

Syrian state television said the "Israeli enemy committed aggression" by targeting the two areas, but said there were no casualties.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, with activists monitoring multiple battlegrounds inside Syria, said that 10 explosions were heard outside a military area near Dimas.

Israel has carried out several airstrikes in Syria since the revolt against Syrian President Bashar el-Assad began nearly four years ago. But it has not acknowledged them and did not comment on the Syrian report Sunday.
