Syrian air defences intercept Israeli attack over Homs: Report


Homs province is next to Lebanon, where the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shia Hezbollah group dominates the border areas.

Syrian state media reported that Syrian air defenses have stopped an Israeli attack on the al-Qusr area in Homs.

A Syrian military source said in a statement on Thursday that the raid caused some physical damage but no casualties.

The Israeli military said it had no comment.

Syria said on Monday it had halted the attack on Aleppo.

Homs province is linked to Lebanon, where the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shia Hezbollah group dominates the rugged border region.

Western intelligence sources have said Israel’s intensified raids on Syria since last year are part of a shadow war approved by the United States.

The attacks are also part of an anti-Iran policy that has sought to undermine Iran’s broader military might without triggering a significant escalation in hostilities over the past two years.
