An alleged Israeli airstrike targeted the commercial port in Latakia in northwestern Syria for the second time in a month early Tuesday morning, according to Syrian state news agency SANA.
A Syrian military source told SANA that the strike was carried out from over the Mediterranean Sea and targeted the container yard at the port, sparking large fires and causing large amounts of damage.
Videos reportedly from the scene showed large explosions that could be seen from a distance lighting up the night sky. According to SANA, a nearby hospital and a number of other buildings and shops were damaged due to the airstrike as well.
This is the second alleged Israeli airstrike on the Latakia port this month and the third alleged Israeli airstrike on Syria in general this month.
