Coalition strike in Syria kills 12 pro-government forces: Monitor

Syrian air defenses repel ‘missile aggression’ in Homs- SANA

Late on Thursday, Syrian TV reported a military base in central Syria came under attack from "enemy" fire and that Syrian air defenses confronted a missile attack.

The news agency had earlier said that sounds of explosions were heard near Dabaa airport, which lies about 20 kilometers southwest of Homs near the Lebanese border.

On Wednesday, a senior Israeli Air Force official warned the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad that if its air defense systems fired on Israeli jets, they would be targeted in return.

It was not immediately clear whether jihadists were active in the area at the time, nor whether the pro-regime casualties may have been accidental.

One of the 12 demands issued by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was a complete pullout from Syria of all pro-Iranian forces.

In February, coalition forces struck pro-government forces in eastern Syria that the USA said had attacked US -backed Kurdish forces battling IS militants.

Albu Kamal and Hmeimeh lie in Syria's eastern Deir Ezzor province, where Russian-backed Syrian troops and the USA -led coalition have been waging separate offensives against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

The media unit run by Hezbollah, a military ally of Damascus, said the strikes were near T2, an energy installation located near the border with Iraq and about 100 km west of the Euphrates river, where the coalition is backing ground forces against Islamic State.

Western powers blamed Assad and Putin for the attack and have since flown bombers over the country where they have carried out a series of raids.

Hezbollah does not seek war with Israel, but would "assuredly win" if such a war were to break out, leader Hassan Nasrallah said Friday, a day after reports claimed the Jewish state bombed Hezbollah military targets in Syria.

Overnight a Hezbollah Twitter outlet accused the United States coalition of carrying air strikes against Assad regime targets in the east of the country.
