  • Hamas: Zionist entity must be confronted with decisiveness

Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has condemned Zionist entity's latest act of aggression on Syria, which injured two civilians, saying the regime must be confronted with decisiveness.

Hamas Spokesman Hazem Qassem said on Saturday that the Israeli regime is exposing its criminal behavior by extending its aggression to Syrian territories, the Lebanese al-Mayadeen television channel reported.

At least two civilians were injured earlier on Saturday during Israel’s missile attacks against Syria’s western port city of Tartus.

The strike “led to the injury of two civilians, including a woman, and some material damage,” a military source told Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The source also said that Syrian air defenses managed to bring down most of the missiles fired by Israeli warplanes from the direction of Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli

Qassem pointed out that the escalation of Israeli attacks coincides with the efforts of certain regional countries to form military alliances with the occupying regime, saying such a path only serves the regime’s expansionist policy.

He further said that Israel “poses a danger to our people and our nation” and must be confronted vehemently.

The development came less than a month after the Israeli military aircraft carried out air aggression from the direction of the occupied Golan Heights, targeting some points south of the Syrian capital city of Damascus.

Syrian air defenses brought down most of Israeli projectiles during the June 10 attack. The strike caused one civilian injury as well as material damage.
