Two civilians were hurt on Saturday as a result of an Israeli attack on Syria’s western shore, according to the Syrian defense ministry.
According to a statement from the ministry, “the Israeli enemy carried out an air strike” at around 6:30 am close to the town of Al-Hamidiyah. Without going into further detail, the ministry identified the targeted areas as chicken farms.
The strike was carried out from the Mediterranean Sea, to the west of Tripoli in northern Lebanon, and “injured two civilians, including a woman,” according to the statement.
Israel has conducted hundreds of airstrikes against its northern neighbor since the Syrian civil war began in 2011 there.

The raids targeted members of the Syrian government as well as ally forces supported by Iran and Hezbollah militants from Lebanon.
Israeli airstrikes on the Damascus International Airport last month made its runways impassable for several weeks.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, reported that in addition to the substantial harm done to military and civilian runways, neighboring facilities used by Iran and Hezbollah as weapons dumps were also targeted by the strikes.
Nearly 500,000 people have died in the Syrian war, and around 50% of the pre-war population has been driven from their homes.
