The aftermath of a reported Israeli strike in Syria’s Homs Province

Thursday, 14 September | Israel carried out airstrikes in Hama, Syria on Wednesday night, according to Syrian state media. Just hours earlier, Syrian media had reported Israeli strikes on targets in nearby Tartus.

The strikes in Hama came from the direction of northern Lebanon, whereas the rare daytime attack on Tartus originated from over the Mediterranean Sea off the Syrian coast, according to the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency.

The Hama strikes caused “material losses” but no casualties, while the attack on Tartus killed two Syrian soldiers and wounded six other individuals, according to the reports.

However, the Syria Observatory for Human Rights [SOHR], a UK-based watchdog group, claimed that the Tartus casualties were Hezbollah terrorists, according to Hebrew-language media.

Late last month, strikes attributed to Jerusalem put Aleppo International Airport out of service, with Ynet citing a Saudi report as saying they had destroyed an “Iranian military shipment containing sensitive equipment.”

Israel is believed to have struck hundreds of targets in Syria in recent years as part of an effort to prevent Iranian military entrenchment in the country. However, it rarely acknowledges these incidents.

On August 7, four Syrian soldiers were reportedly killed and four others wounded in an Israeli strike near Damascus.

A week later, unexplained “violent explosions” rocked the Syrian capital, with SOHR reporting that the blasts had destroyed an arms depot belonging to Iranian-backed groups.

Tehran recently threatened revenge for the strikes, with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian saying during a visit to the Syrian capital, “The criminal practices by the Zionist entity in the region will not remain without retaliation.”

The Islamic Republic provided immense support to President Bashar al Assad during Syria’s long civil war, and continues to arm terrorist outfits such as Hezbollah.
