DAMASCUS

Israeli warplanes carried out missile attacks against Syrian military sites in the central Hama province, with several intercepted, Syria’s official SANA news agency confirmed on Wednesday. 

SANA, citing a military source, said the attacks targeted a number of military sites in Salamyieh and al-Sabboura neighborhoods in the Hama countryside.

It said Syrian air defenses intercepted several missiles, saying the attacks resulted in only material damage.

Earlier reports suggested that two soldiers were killed in Israeli attacks in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor and Sweida province late Tuesday.

The Israeli military has yet to comment on the reports.

Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war in 2011, Israel has launched many airstrikes on the regime’s military sites and Iranian-backed groups.
