The Israeli satellite imaging company ImageSat International released satellite images of a destroyed site in Syria, south of the city of Masyaf, which seem to correspond with the location of a reported strike in Hama on Tuesday. 

Syrian state media reported on Tuesday that Israeli jets attacked military targets in the northwestern Syrian city of Hama, adding that one person was killed and 12 others were wounded.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, warplanes entered through Lebanese airspace and targeted Iranian positions. A military source told the SANA state news agency that Syrian air defenses intercepted several missiles over the nearby town of Wadi Al Uyun. 

Civilians in the area reported hearing explosions and seeing smoke rise from nearby buildings. Additional strikes were reported in the coastal town of Banias, the site of research centers and military installations.

The Israeli military struck more than 200 targets and fired 800 missiles and mortar shells over the past year-and-a-half, a senior IDF official said Tuesday, adding that the IDF is working intensively to target Iranian weapons convoys and targets in Syria.
