Three Syrian soldiers were injured on Sunday when Israeli missiles struck a city in western Syria, according to state media in BEIRUT.


The missiles were launched at Masyaf in Hama province at dawn, according to the official news agency SANA, which cited a military source. Some of them were successfully taken out by Syria’s air defenses.

It appears that nobody got killed. Pictures released by SANA suggest the missiles may have landed in a rural area.
Israel, which has conducted hundreds of strikes on targets in Syria over the years, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. However, such actions are hardly ever acknowledged or discussed.

Hezbollah, a militant group based in Lebanon, and other militias that are allied with Iran are said to be the targets of its attacks.

There are Hezbollah troops in Syria who are fighting alongside President Bashar Assad’s government. Israel claims that it has been intercepting weapons shipments it believes are destined for the militias.

Israel has previously attacked Masyaf twice in 2022, in May and August, killing five people and wounding two. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights in Britain claims that the attacks were aimed at weapons storage facilities belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and Iran-backed militias.
