2 civilians killed in Israeli attack in central Syria

At least two civilians were killed and seven others were injured in an Israeli attack on central Syria, pro-Assad regime media said Wednesday.

According to reports, Syrian air defenses intercepted the attack above the city of Homs.

“An Israeli air aggression targeted parts of the central region, and the air defences are responding,” it said.

Two civilians were killed, while a civilian and six soldiers were injured in the attack, Syrian state TV said.

The attack also resulted in material damage.

There was no immediate comment from Israeli officials.

The Israeli army rarely acknowledges its strikes in Syria.

However, since the start of the war in Syria 10 years ago, Israel has carried out hundreds of airstrikes on Syrian territory, targeting regime positions as well as allied Iranian forces and members of Hezbollah.

Israel regularly says it will not allow Syria to become a stronghold of its sworn enemy Iran.

The Syrian conflict, which began in 2011 with the regime’s repression of pro-democracy protests, has grown increasingly complex over the past decade, drawing in more and more parties.
