An Israeli bombing targeted a number of sites in the Syrian coastal province of Latakia in the early hours of dawn this morning, the aggression killed a civilian and injured 6 others including a child and his mother.
A Syrian military spokesperson said in a statement conveyed by SANA: ‘At around 2:18 am today, the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack from the direction of southwest Lattakia targeting some points in the coastal area. Our air defense units intercepted the aggression’s missiles and shot down some of them.’
The statement added: ‘The Israeli aggression led to the death of a civilian and the wounding of six others, including a child and his mother, in an initial outcome, in addition to some material losses, including a civilian facility for the manufacture of plastic materials.’
Injured victims of this latest Israeli aggression were taken to the nearest hospitals for treatment, the aggression caused material in a warehouse of plastic materials, firefighters of the Latakia fire department managed to put down the fire in the warehouse shortly after it started.
The aggression was anticipated, Israeli fighter jets were roaming over Lebanon yesterday evening, there was also the Chinese rocket that went out of control passing over western Syria that the Israelis would definitely use as a cover up for their bombing and to raise their morale which is at its lowest after series of setbacks the least of which is the failure of their decades-long ruler Netanyahu’s to form a government by the deadline which was yesterday midnight, for the 5th time.
Russian air defense systems positioned in Hmeimim airbase and the Tartous naval base failed to intercept the incoming Israeli missiles; Russia is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and has a duty to maintain peace and security around the world in addition to maintain the 1974 ceasefire agreement between Syria and Israel which Israel keeps violating whenever it can with the help of all NATO members and most of the Gulfies and the regional countries. Missiles flying over the Russian military bases also pose a threat to the Russian personnel in the area of their operations. The Russian air defense units not directly intercepting incoming Israeli missiles always raise questions among observers about the reasons behind such inactions.
This aggression comes days after the latest Israeli aggression against sites in the outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus which was addressed by the Syrian air defense and one Syrian missile crossed all over Palestinian territories occupied by Israel and exploding kilometers away from Israel’s most secured military nuclear facility in the far south.
