BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Israeli airstrikes on the Syrian city of Masyaf managed to destroy a missile launcher, a new report said on Saturday.

At approximately 2:30 A.M. (local time) on Saturday morning, the Israeli Air Force launched several airstrikes over the city of Masyaf in western Hama.

According to report from the city in western Hama, the Israeli airstrikes hit a Syrian M-600 ballistic missile launcher (AKA “Maysaloun”) near the Masyaf National Hospital.

A picture of the destroyed M-600 missile launcher was posted on Saturday; it would show the complete destruction of the Syrian military’s weapon.

As shown in the photos above, the m-600 was completely destroyed during the Israeli attack on April 13th.

The Israeli attack also destroyed a military storage facility that was located in the vicinity of the Masyaf National Hospital.

Despite erecting their S-300 anti-aircraft missiles near the city of Masyaf, the Syrian military did not actually use this system.

A source from the Syrian military said that the units authorized to use the S-300 system have yet to complete training.
