Syrian State Media Say Air Defenses Intercept Israeli Attack Over Homs

(Reuters) -

Syria’s state media said on Monday that its air defenses intercepted an Israeli missile attack on sites in its central and coastal regions.

State media had said earlier that air defenses were intercepting “hostile targets” over the countryside around the city of Homs, after explosions were heard over Homs and the coastal city of Tartous.

The Syrian military said in a statement that air defenses managed to shoot down most of the missiles used.

Two soldiers were wounded and there were some material losses, the military added.

Israel’s military declined to comment on the report.
