SOHR | “Regime media reports of Israeli attacks on Tartus untrue”
Reliable SOHR sources have confirmed that the reported circulated by regime media of Israeli attacks on positions in Tartus province are completely untrue.
According to SOHR sources, the explosions which have been heard in the region were caused by missiles fired by the regime air-defences, as shrapnel of one of these missiles hit a house in a residential neighbourhood in Hama city in middle Syria.
SOHR sources reported earlier this morning that Israeli fighter jets flying over Lebanon struck at least five positions of Iranian-backed militias and the Lebanese Hezbollah nearby Hama city and the Syria’s middle sector. The airstrikes destroyed all these positions.
On the other hand, shrapnel of missiles fired by regime air-defences in an attempt to intercept the Israeli airstrikes, hit the residential neighbourhood of Kazu in the north-western part of Hama city, which killed a family of four persons, a woman, her husband and two children, and seriously injured an old man, a woman and two other children.
On January 13, reliable SOHR sources confirmed that the number of fatalities rose to at least 57 members, all killed in Israeli airstrikes on positions, weapons warehouses, ammunition and missiles depots affiliated to regime forces, the Lebanese Hezbollah, Iranian forces and their proxy militias, mainly “Fatemiyoun Brigade”, in the area between Deir Ezzor city and the Syria-Iraq border in Al-Bokamal desert.
