An Israeli airstrike in central Syria has killed five people, including a civilian, the official Syrian news agency SANA said on Friday, citing a military source.

“The Israeli enemy carried out airstrikes with a barrage of missiles… targeting some points in the central region,” SANA said.

“The aggression resulted in the death of five martyrs.”

It quoted the military source as adding that seven people were injured, including a child, and there were material losses.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said four of the victims were combatants, whose nationalities are unknown.

Israeli warplanes fired at least eight missiles at Iranian weapons depots and sites in the Masyaf area” in the central province of Hama, said the Britain-based Observatory, which relies on a wide network of sources inside the country. Syria.

The Israeli army told AFP that they do not comment on foreign media reports.

While Israel rarely comments on individual attacks in Syria, it has acknowledged that it has mounted hundreds since 2011, targeting government positions as well as allied forces backed by Iran and the Shi’ite militant group Hezbollah.

In March, Iran‘s Revolutionary Guard Corps said an Israeli rocket attack had killed two Guards officers in Syria.

Iran says it has deployed its forces to Syria at the invitation of Damascus and only as advisers.
