TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Zionist regime has launched air raids on outposts in Syria’s Homs province, wounding at least five soldiers, according to the Syrian Defense Ministry.
The Israeli regime launched “an aerial aggression from the direction of northwest Beirut targeting some outposts in Homs city and its countryside at 00:35 am” (21:35 GMT), the Syrian Defense Ministry said in a statement on state media.
Syrian air defenses intercepted the missiles and shot down some of them, it said.
A Syrian military source said on state media that the attacks caused some material damage with five military personnel injured, Al Jazeera reported.
The Israeli regime’s military declined to comment on the report.
Two Western intelligence sources who requested anonymity told the Reuters news agency that the rocket strikes targeted the T4 air base located west of the ancient city of Palmyra, and al-Dabaa airport near al-Qusayr city near the Lebanese border.
An Israeli air attack last month targeting the airport in Aleppo put it out of commission for two days. The airport has been a main conduit for aid shipments since the deadly 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Syria and Turkey on February 6.
