dpa/GNA – Israeli rockets targeted Syria’s Hama province early Friday, the Syrian state agency Sana reported, citing the country’s military.

The projectiles apparently targeted military positions near Masyaf, according to the report. Syrian air defences sought to repel the rockets.

More detailed information on possible casualties or the targets of the attack was initially not immediately available.

There was also no initial comment from Israel.

Israel has carried out more than 30 airstrikes against targets across Syria so far in the present year, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Israeli attacks in war-torn Syria have been seen as an attempt to prevent Iran, a key ally of President Bashar al-Assad, from building up its military influence in the region.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
