Syria’s state media outlet says five people are killed in Israeli airstrikes Friday tonight in Masyaf, in the northwestern part of the country.

According to SANA, one of those killed is a civilian, meaning the other four were military forces.

The network says seven other people, including a child, were hurt in the airstrikes.

Damage was also caused to a site in the area, SANA says, without elaborating further.

As a rule, Israel’s military does not comment on specific strikes in Syria, but has acknowledged conducting hundreds of sorties against Iran-backed groups attempting to gain a foothold in the country.
