Late on August 14, a series of Israeli strikes hit military positions in the southern and western regions of Syria, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency.
A military source told the stat-run agency that Israeli fighter jets launched airstrikes at positions in the countryside of the capital, Damascus, from the southeast of the Lebanese capital, Beirut. At around the same time, other fighter jets attacked a position located in the southern outskirts of the coastal city of Tartus from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea.
The targeted position in Tartus is reportedly located just a few kilometers away from the city’s port, where the Russian Navy maintains a base.
