Israeli airstrikes hit targets near the western Syrian city of Homs early Saturday morning.
According to the Syrian news agency SANA, three civilians were wounded in the strikes. A civilian fuel station caught fire and a number of tankers and trucks burned as a result of the strike.
“The Israeli enemy carried out an air attack with a number of missiles, from the direction of north Lebanon, targeting several positions in the vicinity of the city of Homs,” the SANA report said.
April and March saw heavy Israeli bombardment of Syria amid a political crisis in Israel over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s judicial overhaul. A few days before the strikes in Homs, Israel shelled southern Syria and later dropped threatening leaflets in the area, warning Syrian soldiers against cooperation with Hezbollah.
At the beginning of April, separate Israeli attacks in Syria killed two members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and two civilians. In March, Israel twice targeted the Aleppo Airport and temporarily put it out of service, halting earthquake aid flights into the Syrian city.
While Israel frequently bombs Syria, Israeli officials rarely acknowledge individual airstrikes. Israel frames its operations in the country as part of its campaign against Iran, but the strikes often harm civilians and Syrian soldiers.

I’ve always been supportive of the JEWISH state of Israel even though they have decimated any chances for the Palestinian people and on and on but…. I am not prepared to go to WWIII, just so they can scratch some itch…Iran can fight back and Israel should remember that. The situation needs to be quelled, the sooner, the better.
Iran is placing fleets of suicide drone s and SRBM’s in place to attack IsIrael-destroying them is righteous self defense.
Still preparing. Always preparing. And then one day when they want to commit collective suicide, they will unleash everything they have on Israel. Then they will live happily ever after. Am I right? If it isn’t their imaginary nukes or their hundreds of thousands of ballistic missiles or all their “terrorist” proxies, it’s fleets of suicide drones. Oh wait, I forgot about their 80 million people doing a massive ground attack. Sorry. But it’s just a matter of time and if Israel doesn’t make them a failed state, Israel will no longer exist.
Better to be prepared than dead. Syria has been a secret police state for 50 years,torturing and murdering their own people.Iranian weapons and inLebanon,Syria and in Iranproper are a reality.Buzz off.
I was talking about Iran. What exactly are they waiting for? They’re always in the planning stages according to you. Do they think they can destroy Israel without the rest of the world noticing? Is that what they are waiting for?
I have no desire to see to see conflict of any kind. I want to see peace deals that are real and positive enough to prevent this kind of activity, which can only have one potential outcome: WAR.
I agree of course.We should have free lunch bars on every corner,but that is not reality.
Neither is any of your bullshit reality. NPT, not good enough. NPT on steroids, the JCPOA, not good enough. Failed state or bust.
🙂 Well said wars.
The only bullshitter here is you.
You are highly cynical today…
Right. Israel has to be the boss hog at the trough, slaughter the rest.
