Casualties reported in Israeli airstrikes on Syria's Homs

A series of overnight Israeli airstrikes on Wednesday caused several casualties among civilians in the Syrian province of Homs and its countryside areas, according to the state-run news agency SANA.

"A number of civilians were killed and injured along with material damage from the Israeli aggression on Homs city and its countryside areas," the agency said without providing the exact number.

It added that the Syrian air defense systems responded to the Israeli missiles and shot down some of them.

Citing a military source from the Bashar al-Assad regime, Sana reported that the strikes were launched from the direction north of the Lebanese coastal city of Tripoli.

There was no immediate comment from Israel.

Israel has been carrying out occasional attacks on Iranian-backed groups and military posts belonging to the army in Syria since the civil war began in 2011.
