Homs province is next to Lebanon, where the Iran-backed Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah group holds sway in border areas.

Syria’s air defenses have intercepted an Israeli attack on the al-Qusayr area in Homs, Syrian state media reported.

A Syrian military source said in a statement Thursday that there was material damage from the raid, but no casualties.

The Israeli army said it has no comment.

Syria said Monday it intercepted an attack on Aleppo.

Homs province borders Lebanon, where the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah group holds sway along the rugged border area.

Western intelligence sources have said Israel’s intensified attacks on Syria since last year are part of a shadow war sanctioned by the United States.

The attacks are also part of an anti-Iran policy that for the past two years has sought to undermine Iran’s vast military might without causing a significant increase in hostilities.
