Al Arabiya reports that Israeli jets are targeting a site in the coastal Syrian city of Tartus.
According to a Syrian-based correspondent for the London-based Rai al-Youm paper, the Israeli jets first flew over the Lebanese coast before launching their missiles.
The Syrian state-run SANA broadcaster says air defenses are engaging “hostile targets” over the area, without elaborating.
Footage circulated online shows bright objects in the sky, which appear to be Syrian air defense missiles engaging the Israeli jets or their missiles.
