“Israel” carries out an air aggression from Lebanese airspace, targeting locations in the Syrian city of Homs and its countryside.
Al Mayadeen’s correspondent in Lebanon reported that an Israeli aggression targeted at dawn Sunday military sites in the western and eastern countryside of Homs, adding that Syrian air defenses intercepted the missiles.
Our correspondent mentioned that the sounds of explosions were heard in the Bekaa Valley as a result of the Syrian air defenses’ interception of Israeli missiles in the vicinity of the city of Homs.
A military source told SANA, that at “around 00:35 a.m., the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack from the direction northeast of Beirut, targeting some points in the city of Homs and its countryside,” confirming that Syrian air defenses intercepted the missiles and shot down a number of them.
The source said the Israeli aggression on Homs resulted in the injury of five Syrian soldiers and caused some material damage.
On Friday, the Syrian air defenses intercepted an Israeli aggression that targeted the south of the Syrian capital, Damascus.
It came less than 24 hours after Israeli airstrikes that targeted the vicinity of Damascus left two Syrian army personnel injured and caused material damage. Following the aggression, the Syrian Foreign Ministry stated that “the Israeli terrorist aggression that targeted some points in the vicinity of Damascus city this morning is nothing but a continuation of the fascist method of the Israeli entity towards the peoples and countries of the region.”
“This hostile act is an attempt by the entity to escape from its internal disintegration,” the ministry tweeted.
It added that “the region cannot enjoy peace or stability unless an end is put to the Israeli occupation and its repeated attacks.”
