This morning, Israeli warplanes attacked Syrian army positions in the country’s central region, leaving two civilians dead and seven people wounded, six of them soldiers.
State news agency (SANA) quoted an official saying the warplanes fired missiles while flying over the airspace of neighboring Lebanon. The official added that the strike took place at 1:26 a.m. (2326 GMT).
Moreover, the official said Syria’s air defenses shot down most of the missiles, noting that there was also some material damage besides the casualties.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the strikes killed four, including two who lost their lives when they were hit by parts of a Syrian surface-to-air missile that fell in the central city of Homs.
There was no comment from the Israeli military.
Earlier this month, the Syrian Air Defence intercepted Israeli aggression on sites in the central and coastal regions over Homs and the coastal city of Tartous.
