Syrian port city of Latakia is destroyed
A Syrian air defense base near the port city of Latakia was completely destroyed on Thursday morning in a missile attack from the sea. Jerusalem Post writes about this referring to Arab media reported.
According to reports emanating from the rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, a large explosion occurred near the army base in Latakia on Wednesday night. Witness posted on Twitter that the explosion happened near coastal city Jableh, 30 kilometers south of Latakia, a stronghold of Assad's Alawites.
It is unclear who is behind the explosion or its purpose. There were no reports of casualties.
Members of the Syrian and Lebanese media have charged that Israel is behind the attack. Israel's defense establishment has not responded to the report.
