At least two Syrian soldiers have been killed after intruding Israeli warplanes targeted an army position in the west-central province of Hama, in yet another act of aggression against the Arab country.
The Syrian army said in a statement on Thursday that the new Israeli attack took place near the town of Masyaf in Hama Province.
The statement further warned against the “dangerous repercussions of this aggressive action to the security and stability of the region.” Earlier media reports said the Israeli military had struck a scientific research facility in the Syrian city of Masyaf.
Citing pro-government activists, Al-Masdar News, a pan-Arab news and commentary website, said Thursday that Israeli warplanes targeted the Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) in Masyaf in Hama. Israeli officials have not immediately commented on the reports.
