Israeli warplanes have bombarded a military post in Syria’s central province of Hama, Syrian state television reports.

The brief report did not elaborate on what exactly had been hit in the city of Misyaf on Sunday evening, but said only material damage had been inflicted.

"One of our military positions in Masyaf was the target of an Israeli air aggression," Syria's official news agency, SANA, said quoting a military source.

The unnamed source added that the strike was an attempt to cover up for the collapse of terrorist organizations in Dara'a and Quneitra.

Meanwhile, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is close to Syria’s opposition groups, claimed that the Israeli strike targeted a workshop where surface-to-surface missiles were made. 

Masyaf, where a government scientific research center is located, was also hit by another Israeli airstrike in September 2017.

Last week, Syrian state news outlets reported that Israeli rockets had struck a Syrian military position near Nairab airport on the outskirts of the city of Aleppo.

The Tel Aviv regime has recently increased its airstrikes in Syria. Damascus has on multiple occasions denounced the Israeli regime’s aggression and also warned about the “dangerous repercussions” of Israeli assaults on its territory.

Tel Aviv is widely believed to have been providing weapons to anti-Damascus militants as well as medical treatment to Takfiri elements wounded in Syria inside the occupied Golan Heights.

Earlier this month, Syrian air defenses repelled an Israeli attack on the country's Quneitra Province.

Back on May 10, Israel conducted what it called its most intensive airstrikes on Syria in decades. According to Russia's Defense Ministry, Israel had used 28 warplanes in its airstrikes and fired 70 missiles. Both Damascus and Moscow said the Syrian army managed to shoot down over half of the missiles.

The Tel Aviv regime, at the time, claimed that its assault was in response to a barrage of 20 rockets fired from Syria at Israeli military outposts in Golan.

Syria, which has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011, has said that the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies have been aiding Takfiri terrorist groups.
