An Israeli strike on Syria’s coast south of Tartous has wounded two civilians on Saturday, the Syrian defence ministry says.

Syria accuses Israel of launching an air aggression from across the Mediterranean, with several missiles targeting south of Tartous.

The ministry in a statement said; “The Israeli enemy carried out an air strike near the town of al-Hamidiyah.

“It led to the injury of two civilians, including a woman."

While Israel rarely comments on individual attacks, it has acknowledged carrying out hundreds of air raids in Syria since civil war broke out in 2011.

The raids have targeted Syrian government troops as well as allied Iran-backed forces and fighters from the Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah.

It says the strikes are necessary to prevent regional rival Iran from gaining a foothold on its doorstep.

The Syrian war has killed nearly half a million people and forced about half of the country’s population from their homes.
