Shells hit arms depot near Syria’s Homs
Syrian media cite Homs governor as saying ‘civilians’ were injured as blasts ripped through the area
Israeli missiles targeted and destroyed a warehouse used by Hezbollah to store ammunition and missiles, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Friday.
According to the war monitor, the facility was located on the road connecting Homs with Palmyra. It did not specify whether the Homs strike produced any casualties.
Earlier, Syrian state SANA news agency reported that a military facility near the city of Homs was hit in an attack Friday, citing the area’s governor.
According to the report, blasts ripped through the area, with smoke seen over the site and a number of “civilians” who happened to be passing by wounded in the incident.
The agency did not point fingers at any possible attackers, saying the exact nature of the incident is currently unknown.
Earlier in the day, SANA reported that Israeli helicopters launched missiles on targets in the governorate of Quneitra, which borders Israel, from over the Golan Heights.
It said the strike resulted in “limited” material damage as some of the projectiles apparently reached their aims.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed the strike, saying it was aimed at Iranian targets and against pro-Iran militias operating in the area.
