The Syrian government on Tuesday claimed that Israeli fighter jets carried missile strikes in Homs province.

The SANA news agency said: "At 20:25 of Tuesday, the Israeli warplanes launched a number of missiles, from over Lebanon airspace, into the direction of eastern Homs.

"Immediately, the army air defense intercepted the hostile missiles and shot down a number of them," 

Israel is yet to comment on the Syrian Government claims.

Notably, the Iran-backed resistance group and Lebanese Hezbollah are stationed alongside Syrian government forces in Homs.

Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war in 2011, Israel has launched many airstrikes on the Syrian Government's military sites and Iranian-backed groups.
