Israel Hits Targets In Syria, SAM Missile Explodes In Its Airspace

Israel carried out airstrikes on areas near the central Syrian city of Homs early Sunday causing physical damage but no casualties, the Syrian military announced in a statement. A Syrian anti-aircraft missile exploded over Israeli territory, the Israeli military informed, prompting another round of strikes.

Syrian state media quoted an unknown military official as saying the air strikes shot down some of the missiles fired by Israeli warplanes flying over neighboring Lebanon. Israeli authorities did not comment on the airstrike on Homs. But the military said one of the Syrian air defense missiles exploded over Israeli territory without causing any damage. Israeli police said the rocket’s remains landed in the southern Israeli city of Rahat. In response to the rocket, Israeli jets struck the air defense battery from where the anti-aircraft rocket was launched. The military said it also struck other targets, without elaborating much.
