'New aggression,' missile attacks reported in Syria


Associated Press

Syrian TV is reporting a "new aggression," with missiles targeting military outposts in northern Syria.

The state-run television reported early Monday that the missiles targeted military outposts in the Hama and Aleppo countryside. It did not say who fired the missiles or whether there were any casualties or damage.

The news comes less than two weeks after a similar report of airstrikes on government military installations in the central Homs region and the suburbs of Damascus. But the military later said a false alarm had set off air defense systems.

Earlier this month, seven Iranian military personnel were killed in an airstrike on Syria's T4 air base, also in Homs.

Syria, Iran and Russia blamed Israel for that attack. Israel did not confirm or deny it.
