Report: Israel bombed weapons cache in Syria
From World Israeli News:
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) attacked and destroyed a weapons storage facility in the Syrian city of Homs on Wednesday night, Arab media reported.
The Syria Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that “violent explosions shook” the city, and that the strikes were executed against “a military establishment.”
The London-based SOHR quotes sources that say that the facility was a rocket depot. It is not known whether these rockets belonged to the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group or the Assad regime.
Lebanon’s National News Agency (NNA) reported “strong blasts” were heard inside Lebanon, “caused by Israeli airstrikes” in Syria.
“The Syrian army fired several missiles at the raiding warplanes,” NNA said.
“The Syrian army responded with a surface-to-air missile that it fired towards the raiding Israeli fighter jets,” Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen.
Israel has conducted strikes against Syrian targets from Lebanese airspace in the past, thus avoiding the Russian air defense system deployed in Syria.
