According to Syrian TV broadcasters, Israel has yet again targeted a military facility in Syria with a fresh round of missile attacks, just days before, Israeli Air Force missiles destroyed a building in the Syrian city of al-Qiswa where an Iranian military facility was reportedly under construction.
Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) fired seven or more missiles, but at least a few of them were intercepted. According to Sky News Arabic, the missiles were launched from Lebanese airspace. The IDF generally doesn’t disclose many details about its hostile military operations.
A report from Syria states the missiles targeted Jamriya, a city approximately 3 miles northwest of the Syrian capital of Damascus. Witnesses told Reuters they heard three loud explosions and that smoke was seen near the Jamriya area.
Meantime, two projectiles were fired toward Israel’s southern Eshkol region from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, the IDF reported on Tuesday. There is still no information about casualties or inflicted damage caused by the attack. This is at least the third time when the Israeli territory has been hit from the Sinai Peninsula since the beginning of the year. The previous incident took place on October 15, 2017.
