Syria says Israeli airstrike on military position wounds 3

An Israeli air strike in central Syria destroyed an Iranian missile development facility and a training centre, Syrian media and a war monitor said on Saturday.

The Syrian Army air defenses intercepted an Israeli aerial attack that targeted one of the military positions near Massyaf City in the Hama northern countryside, SANA reported, citing a military source.

"Our air defence batteries intercepted some of the Israeli missiles", the source said, adding that the strike "wounded three combatants and destroyed buildings". It said there were also deaths, but it was not immediately clear how many were killed and how many were Iranians or Iran-sponsored fighters.

Iran is a close ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad and has sent military advisers, as well as thousands of fighters from across the region, to help his forces in the eight-year conflict.

Israel does not usually comment on reports concerning its airstrikes in neighbouring Syria, though it has recently acknowledged striking Iranian targets there. The area is known to house Iranian forces and their Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah.

The move was a diplomatic prize for Israel, but met with a chorus of opposition from United States foes and allies alike.

They were joined in 2015 by Russia, which supplied its S300 air defence system to Assad's forces after a Russian aircraft was downed by mistake by Syrian defence systems during an Israeli raid on September 17, killing all 15 people on board.
