After suspension of attacks for more than a month | Israeli strikes hit military sites in Damascus and middle of Syria
SOHR activists have reported that Israeli strikes targeted Syrian military sites in the early hours of Wednesday morning, after suspension of attacks for about one month.
SOHR activists have reported hearing explosions in the perimeter of Damascus international airport, the Air-Defense Battalion in the Al-Dumayr district and other positions in the south-west of Homs governorate.
Also loud explosions were heard in Hamah and Latakia governorates due to air-defense systems which launched several surface-to-air missiles, attempting to intercept the Israeli rockets.
Israeli strikes left many causalities, as in Homs, ambulances were seen rushing to the targeted sites. Also, arsenals in the al-Dumayr district have been exploded.
It is worth noting that regime forces and Iranian-backed militias were seen on high alert in the perimeter of Damascus international airport for unknown reasons since early June.
