The recent Israeli strikes on Syria have targeted a large storage facility of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in western Homs, satellite images shared by Aurora Intel on June 9 revealed.
The strikes took place late on June 8. The storage facility in western Homs was only one of many targets struck by the Israeli military. Some of the targets were located in Homs, while others were located near the capital Damascus.
Aurora Intel images indicate that the Israeli strikes wiped out most of the facility, which includes more than 55 large hangars. Burn marks were also visible near a former chemical weapons facility in southern Homs.

The Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces intercepted several Israeli missiles. Nevertheless, the attack was not completely foiled as proven by satellite images.
Seven Syrian service members, including a senior officer in the country’s top military research and development center, were killed as a result of the Israeli strikes.
More information about the Israeli strikes, which were the first in more than a month, will likely surface in the upcoming few days. The targets were apparently storage and research facilities of the SAA.
