In an interview with Russia’s Tass news agency, Rear Adm. Vadim Kulit, the head of the Russian military’s Reconciliation Center in Syria, appears to confirm reports of Israeli strikes in Syria last week.
“Two F-16 fighter jets of the Israeli Air Force made a strike with four guided missiles on facilities in Homs province from the airspace of Lebanon,” he says.
“All four missiles were destroyed by the Syrian duty air defense facilities, with the use of Buk-2ME systems of Russian manufacture.”
Israeli planes carried out airstrikes against targets in Homs on both Wednesday and Thursday nights, Damascus claims.
Israel’s military does not comment on reports of specific strikes in Syria, save for those that are made in retaliation.
