Syrian media reports casualties in alleged Israeli strike; intel source says airbase was targeted

Syria’s state-run SANA news agency, citing a military source, say a number of civilians were killed and wounded amid an alleged Israeli strike on the Homs area.

SANA says Israeli warplanes launched their missiles from an area north of Lebanon’s Tripoli, targeting several sites in Homs and the nearby area.

The source claims Syrian air defenses shot down some of the Israeli missiles.

In addition to the casualties, SANA says damage was caused to both public and private property.

Local sources tell Reuters that the attack targeted several Syrian army outposts and an airbase in the Homs area, with a Syrian military intelligence source familiar with the matter saying it targeted the Shayrat airbase.
