Missiles fired from over the Golan Heights reportedly hit military installations in the Quneitra border area. Later Friday, Israel attacked a Hezbollah weapon depot in Homs, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says.
Explosions at a Syrian military base housing a weapons warehouse Friday were the result of “human error” while moving ammunition, the Syrian defense ministry said. Ten civilians outside the base were hurt, a local doctor said.
However, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitoring group, said the blasts at the base near the central city of Homs were caused by a suspected Israeli rocket attack. The group said Syrian air defenses were activated before the explosions, suggesting they were responding to an incoming attack.
