Syrian rebels have declared Damascus International Airport to be a military target, warning airlines and civilians to avoid the area. Clashes around the airport have intensified recently, disrupting work at the hub.

“The rebel brigades who have been putting the airport under siege decided yesterday that the airport is a fair target,” rebel spokesperson Nabil al-Amir of the Damascus Military Council said on Friday.

Syrian rebels have been targeting the country’s airports for several days now. Last week, the main road to the Damascus airport was closed due to heavy fighting between government troops and armed opposition forces.

Several major airlines were forced to cancel flights into the city.

Meanwhile, government forces are massing in the suburbs of Damascus, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
