Civilians Killed in Israeli Air Strikes on Syria’s Homs

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Israeli regime’s military launched air strikes on the city of Homs and surrounding countryside, “killing a number of civilians” and injuring several more, reports Syria’s state-run SANA news agency, citing a military source.

Israeli warplanes fired missiles from north of the Lebanese city of Tripoli at about 3am local time (00:00 GMT), targeting several sites in Homs and the surrounding area, SANA reported.

The attacks targeted Syrian army outposts and the Shayrat Airbase, the Reuters news agency reported, citing local sources.

Citing the military, the Syrian news agency added that the country’s air defenses intercepted some of the Israeli “aggression’s missiles and shot down some of them.”

The Israeli regime has accelerated its attacks on Syria since the start of its military campaign against Gaza in October, as well as its regional aggression on neighboring Syria and Lebanon.
