Early on July 25, a mysterious explosion rocked the southern outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus amid military escalation caused by the recent Israeli air strikes. 

The explosion was heard all over Damascus. A large cloud of black smoke was spotted over the city. Syrian authorities are yet to release an official statement explaining the causes of the explosion.

Some sources said that the explosion was the result of a military accident. Others, however, claimed that an Israeli attack targeted the southern outskirts of the capital, where Damascus International Airport is located. The airport was targeted by Israel on numerous occasions in the past eight years.

Israel carried out two attacks on Syria this week. On July 19, a series of Israeli airstrikes hit a number of targets in the northern governorate of Aleppo. On July 21, another wave of airstrikes hit al-Daba Air Base in the central governorate of Homs.

The Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces intercepted several Israeli missiles during the last attacks, reportedly with support from Russia. Nevertheless, losses were reported.

More information on the mysterious explosion in Damascus may surface soon. New satellite images will reveal any attack by Israel.
