Syria’s state-run SANA broadcaster says two civilians are hurt after an Israeli airstrike near the city of Masyaf in the northwestern part of the country.

According to SANA, Israeli jets launch missiles from over the Mediterranean, southwest of the port city of Tartus, targeting several sites in the Hama region.

It says damage is caused to the sites that are hit, and there are fires in the area.

Footage published on social media shows prolonged secondary explosions at the sites allegedly hit by Israel.

The area around Masyaf, which is thought to be used as a base for Iranian forces and pro-Iranian militias, has been repeatedly targeted in recent years in attacks widely attributed to Israel.
