AMMAN — Syrian air defenses intercepted an Israeli attack on several areas in northwestern Syria, including the port city of Latakia along the Mediterranean coast, state media said.
It gave no details except that the Israeli dawn attack on Wednesday also hit the town of Hifa, east of the port city of Latakia, and Misyaf in Hama province. Earlier state media had reported explosions in near Latakia city.
Israel has in the past repeatedly hit targets inside Syria where Iranian-backed militias are based.
