Syria: Two children among family killed by Israeli strikes, says state media

Syria: Two children among family killed by Israeli strikes, says state media”

Israel's military said on Friday it downed a drone that crossed from Lebanon and would continue to protect its sovereignty.

If the report of the Israeli attack is accurate, this will be Israel's first attack on Iranian positions and facilities in Syria since US President Joe Biden's inauguration, and would double as a message to the new administration that Israel still does not intend to let Iran further expand its forces, missile or military capabilities in Syria.

Israel has launched hundreds of strikes against Iran-linked military targets in Syria over the years. The Syrian military official said the attack was aimed at several targets in and near the central province of Hama.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced Friday that its troops downed a drone that entered Israel's airspace from Lebanon.

In addition, four others were wounded, and three houses were destroyed in the western edge of Hama. State TV said the family killed had been displaced by Syria's almost 10-year conflict.

Conversely, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the four civilians were killed after a surface-to-air missile shot by a Syrian government anti-aircraft gun hit their home and blew it up, and not by the impact of one of the Israeli missiles.

Israel rarely confirms it has carried out strikes in Syria, but the army said it hit about 50 targets in the war-torn country in 2020, without providing details.

The incident comes days after the Israeli military carried out airstrikes on the eastern city of Dayr al-Zawr as well as the town of al-Bukamal, along the border with Iraq. The strikes also come amid intensifying low-altitude Israeli warplane missions in Lebanese skies that have caused jitters among residents.
