There is no official confirmation that Israeli missiles hit Iranian military positions in Syria a second time this month.
"Some military sites in the countryside of Hama and Aleppo provinces were exposed at 10.30pm to a new aggression with hostile rockets", a military source told Syrian Arab News Agency. At 10:40 pm, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre reported the equivalent of a magnitude-2.6 quake around 10 miles from Hama. Over 18 people were killed and another 60 were wounded, Sky News Arabia reported citing regime media.
The US, UK and French missile strikes on Syria earlier in April will "only increase the Syrians' determination to eliminate terrorism in all its forms, and uphold their sovereignty and their right to shape their own future", Syrian President Bashar Assad said, as he accepted a top Iranian MP in Damascus.

In Iran, there were conflicting reports on the casualties and on whether Iranian assets were struck. Also, on April 28, the Syrian army is reported to have liberated areas in southern Damascus from Islamic State militants.
The Syrian Observatory said at least 26 people were killed, four of them Syrians.

"It seems as if it's an Israeli strike". The Minister of Strategic Affairs, Israel Katz, said Monday to army Radio that he was not aware of facts.
He also called on Iranian officials to act wisely in response to the developments in Syria and avoid giving an excuse to Israel for creating tension between the sides in Syria.
