Israeli Fighter Jets have struck a military facility in Hama province, 46km north of Homs of western Syria, leaving two people dead, according to a Syrian commander, Al-Jazeera reports.
According to the statement by Syrian army, the air strike caused material damage near the town of Masyaf.
The army warned against what it described as “dangerous repercussions of this aggressive action to the security and stability of the region”.
The air strike, according to the Syrian state-run news agency, SANA, was carried out from Lebanese airspace and two people were killed at the site.
An Israeli army spokesperson declined to discuss reports of the air strike, saying the army would not comment on operational matters.
“Israeli warplanes at 2:42 a.m. today fired a number of missiles from Lebanese air space, targeting one of our military positions near Masyaf, which led to material damage and the deaths of two members of the site,” the Syrian army said in a statement.
