The Syrian army said on Friday a series of blasts at an ammunition depot east of Homs city led to casualties but was not caused by an attack as earlier announced, but a war monitor said it was the result of an Israeli strike.
The army said in a statement released on state television there were civilian losses without elaborating on details
The attack follows overnight strikes by Israeli helicopters from the Israeli occupied Golan Heights on Iranian bases in southern Syria, according to the monitor and intelligence sources.
The overnight attack targeted several locations in the south of the country, and only made “limited material damage,” SANA said.
The combat helicopters allegedly attacked in the Tel Ahmar area south of Quneitra. No casualties among Syrian military personnel stationed in the area were reported.
