Videos and photos allegedly capturing a moment of what was said by the state-run SANA news agency to be "Israeli aggression" near the country's capital city of Damascus emerged online in the early hours of Monday.
According to SANA, "strong explosions" were heard in the western suburbs of Damascus, following airstrikes said to have been carried out from the Golan Heights.
Footage allegedly captured the moment of the attack, revealing what appears to be a missile shining in the dark sky above the capital city and landing somewhere in the vicinity, causing a bright explosion.
