One Syrian soldier was killed and three were wounded in the second alleged Israeli airstrike in a week.
One Syrian soldier was killed and three were wounded in an alleged Israel airstrike in the Homs Governorate on Wednesday night, the second such airstrike in the past week, according to the Syrian state news agency SANA.
The strike targeted a communications tower and a number of other sites in the area of Palmyra in central Syria, causing material damage. The strike was carried out from the direction of the al-Tanf area near the Jordanian and Iraqi borders with Syria, a Syrian military source told SANA.
The airstrike comes just a week after an alleged Israeli airstrike on the T-4 airport, also near Palmyra, wounded six Syrian soldiers, according to SANA.

Satellite imagery from Sentinel Hub shared on social media showed damage on the runway at T-4 after the airstrike last week.
Before the airstrike last week, the last airstrike blamed on Israel in Syria took place in August, targeting the Qalamoun Mountains near the capital of Damascus. Four Syrian civilians were reportedly killed when Syrian air defense missiles fell in a residential area in the town of Qara.
