According to Syrian state media, Syrian air defenses are engaging unidentified "enemy" targets around Damascus as of Saturday evening (local time), August 24. Further details are still emerging.


Individuals in Damascus are advised to monitor developments, seek shelter, avoid nonessential travel and affected areas, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
