DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Israel fired missiles towards northwest Syria early Wednesday, killing one particular person and wounding six, Syrian state media reported.
It was the primary Israeli assault on Syria since a missile fired by Damascus struck deep inside Israel two weeks in the past.
The missiles focused the northwestern cities of Haffeh and Masyaf and struck a civilian plastic warehouse amongst different areas, state TV stated. Syrian air protection models responded to the missile assaults, the report stated, with out giving additional particulars.
Israel has launched a whole bunch of strikes in opposition to Iran-linked army targets in Syria over time however not often acknowledges or discusses such operations.
Israel views Iranian entrenchment on its northern frontier as a purple line, and it has repeatedly struck Iran-linked amenities and weapons convoys destined for Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group.
The missile assault at daybreak Wednesday occurred practically two weeks after Israel’s army stated a Syrian missile that reached deep into Israeli territory and set off air raid sirens close to the nation’s top-secret nuclear reactor was the results of a misfire and never a deliberate assault.
The missile landed in southern Israel on April 22, prompting Israel to reply with airstrikes on the missile launcher and different targets in Syria.
