Civilians killed by Israeli air strikes on Syria: SANA

The Israeli military has launched air strikes on the city of Homs and surrounding countryside, “killing a number of civilians” and injuring several more, reports Syria’s state-run SANA news agency, citing a military source.

Israeli warplanes fired missiles from north of the Lebanese city of Tripoli at about 3am local time [00:00 GMT], targeting several sites in Homs and the surrounding area, SANA reports.

The attacks targeted Syrian army outposts and the Shayrat Airbase, the Reuters news agency reports, citing local sources.

Israel has escalated its attacks on Syria since October, as regional tensions have grown between Israel and Iran-backed groups in neighbouring Syria and Lebanon.
