Syria Fresh Attacks.jpg

There are fresh reports of missile attacks on Syria. The Syrian news agency SANA, reports that material damage was caused due to terrorist rocket attacks that hit Baba Amro neighbourhood and al-Mashrfa village in Homs.

Sana said that “terrorist groups positioned in the northern countryside of Homs fired three rocket shells on al-Mashrfa village, causing only material damage to properties. Material damage was also caused when a rocket shell fired by terrorists landed on Baba Amro neighbourhood.”

While SANA reports did not say if there were any casualties, the BBC referred to a UK-based monitoring group which said four Syrians and 22 foreigners, mostly Iranians, died.

There is no indication as to who was behind the attacks. Earlier this month the USA, UK and France carried airstrikes, while Israel also has previously hit sites in Syria.

News site ORIENT reported that large explosions were seen in the Assad regime’s controlled areas in Hama southern province,  referring to local media reported. The explosions took place in ammunition caches of the regime’s Brigade 47, which locally known as the Research Mountain in Hama northern province. BBC also confirmed this quoting the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a UK-based monitoring group, said one strike appeared to have targeted a depot for surface-to-surface missiles at the 47th Brigade military base, south of the city of Hama.

Army units responded to the attacks with the appropriate weapons, killing a number of terrorists and destroying a number of their fortified points and launching pads.
