Syrian state media reported Saturday night that Israeli forces struck targets in the country’s central region.


“At about 7:45 pm (local time) on Saturday, the Israeli enemy launched an aerial aggression from the direction of the north of Lebanon that targeted some points in the central region,” the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported from Damascus.

“The army air defenses confronted it and downed a number of missiles,” SANA reported.

Local sources reported the strikes were targeting the area of Masyaf in northwestern Hama province.

At least three areas were targeted in Masyaf, including an alleged Iranian weapons production factory near Zawi, known to have produced barrel bombs, according to Syria military analyst Qalaat Al Mudiq.

The hour of the attack was unusual, in that most air strikes are conducted under cover of darkness.
