1 killed, 6 injured in alleged Israeli airstrike targets Syrian coast – The Jerusalem Post

An alleged Israeli airstrike targeted a site near Latakia and Tartus along Syria’s Mediterranean coast on Tuesday night, according to the Syrian state news agency SANA. The strikes also hit the town of Hifa, east of the port city of Latakia, and Misyaf in Hama province.
A civilian was killed and six civilians were injured, including a child, according to Syrian media.
The strike targeted a “civilian plastic warehouse,” according to SANA. Initial reports and video from the scene indicated that a large fire had broken out in the area.
Pictures published by SANA showed a largely destroyed structure on fire.

In 2018, a Russian military aircraft was shot down near Latakia by a Syrian S-200 air defense missile during an Israeli airstrike. Russia expressed outrage at the incident at the time, placing the blame on Israel, while Israel blamed Syria.
Russia operates an air base in Latakia and a naval base in Tartus.
The last alleged Israeli airstrikes in Syria were reported late last month after a surface-to-air missile was fired from Syria and exploded near the nuclear reactor in Dimona in southern Israel. The missile was reportedly fired in response to an alleged Israeli strike in Syria.

Reuters contributed to this report.
