The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that “at least 6 members of the gunmen loyal to the Syrian regime and non-Syrian nationalities, including members of the regime forces, were killed in the air strikes carried out by Israeli warplanes on several Syrian targets” starting Saturday at dawn.

The targeted areas were between the outskirts of T4 Airbase and the al-Bayyarat area in the eastern countryside of Homs; the al-Dimas area northwest of Rif Dimashq; and the administrative borders between Daraa and Rif Dimashq.

The Syrian Observatory also reported that regime soldiers were injured in these airstrikes, suggesting the death toll is expected to rise as some of the wounded were in critical situation.

The Syrian Observatory reported that the Israeli warplanes targeted the outskirts of T4 Airport from the side of Al-Bayyarat area in Homs Desert, in which Iranian forces, the Lebanese Hezbollah and regime forces are located, and the attack resulted in injuries to the regime forces and their allies.

Israeli warplanes also targeted areas in the south-western outskirts of Damascus, the Al-Dimas area on Damascus–Beirut highway near the Syrian–Lebanese border.

Altogether, the Syrian Observatory reported three waves of Israeli bombardments, under anti-aircraft fire.
