Although there is no official confirmation yet, state media say explosions near the Mediterranean port city were caused by air defenses engaging “enemy targets.”
Syrian air defences on Wednesday allegedly engaged an Israeli air offensive in northwestern Syria, the state-run SANA news agency reported.
The Israeli attack struck targets in the town of Haffeh, which lies east of the port city of Latakia. The operation also targeted Masyaf in Hama province.
Syrian state TV reports one civilian was killed and six were injured from the operation, including a woman and her son.
Israel has frequently struck Iranian military targets in Syria in its proxy war with Tehran.
