TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Several Syria military bases in the provinces of Hama and Aleppo were attacked on Sunday night reportedly by missiles fired from US and UK bases in Jordan.
According to Syria’s state news agency on Sunday, “a new aggression with hostile missiles” happened at 10:30 pm local time, in which military positions in the Hama and Aleppo villages were targeted.
While the origins of the attacks are not clear yet, some Syrian media sources said the nine missiles had been fired from US and British bases in north of Jordan.
The attacks came several weeks after Russia and Syria said Israeli warplanes struck an air base in the Syrian province of Homs.
It also comes a few weeks after, the US, Britain and France carried out a string of airstrikes against Syria over a suspected chemical attack against Douma. Washington and its allies blamed Damascus for the suspected assault.
The Syrian government has strongly denied the allegation, calling on Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to send a fact-finding mission for investigations.
