Israeli aircrafts launched on Monday new raids targeting the Syrian army in Syria, Syrian and Israeli news websites reported.

Citing the Syrian news website Zaman al-Wasl, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz said that Israeli aircrafts launched strikes in Homs against fortifications related to the fourth mechanical battalion of the Syrian army.

According to residents, huge explosions were heard during the raids.

The newspaper added that Homs is controlled by the Syrian army and it is witnessing battles with Syrian opposition groups as well with Daesh.

Israel previously carried out several raids in Syria against Hezbollah and the Syrian army, but this is the first time the Israeli army has launched strikes on Syria under Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who has appointed in late May.
