Arab media reported Wednesday that Israel attacked an arms factory in the rural areas south of the Syrian city of Homs.

According to the reports, the attack was carried out by IAF fighter jets. Reports also said that Syria responded to the airstrikes.

About two weeks ago, the Israeli Air Force attacked an SA5 air-to-surface missile battery east of Damascus, the Syrian capital. Missiles had been fired that morning from the anti-aircraft missile battery at IAF planes flying on a routine flight over Lebanon.

Apparently, this is the same battery from which missiles were fired in the past at IAF planes that carried out flight missions in the area.

It should be noted that the IDF updated in real time Russian forces operating in Syria about the attack.
