An air strike on Masyaf in Syria hit a Scientific Studies and Research Centre facility and an adjacent military camp where ground-to-ground rockets are stored, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday in reference to reports on an Israeli airstrike in the area early Thursday morning.
The Syrian army in reaction has warned Israel of serious repercussions should it continue to attack in the area, Hebrew media has reported.
The United States has imposed sanctions on employees of the Scientific Studies and Research Centre, which it describes as the Syrian agency responsible for developing and producing non-conventional weapons including chemical weapons, something Damascus denies.
