Syria says Israeli strike killed 1 child and wounded 10 civilians

At least one female child was killed and 10 civilians injured on Wednesday following a strike on a residential building in the coastal Syrian city of Baniyas, the country’s state news SANA reported.

SANA, citing a military source, said Israeli fighter jets launched an “air aggression from the direction of Lebanese territory, targeting a site in the central region and a residential building in the city of Baniyas in the coastal region.”

CNN has reached out to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) regarding the claims but has yet to hear back.

Syria was last struck in April after a series of Israeli airstrikes targeted areas close to the Syrian city of Aleppo, which led to casualties among both civilians and military personnel, SANA reported.

Israel has previously launched attacks on Aleppo and the Syrian capital Damascus, including before the October 7, saying it feared Iran would turn Syria into “a base for aggression” against the Jewish state.

Both Syria and Israel consider each other enemies and do not share diplomatic relations.

Egypt denies Israel claims of tunnels along border with Gaza

Egypt denied Israeli statements about the existence of tunnels along its border with Gaza, calling Israeli media reports untrue, according to state-affiliated Al-Qahera TV on Wednesday.

“These lies propagated by Tel Aviv indicate the size of the crisis facing the Israeli government,” the channel said, quoting an unnamed senior official.

A different senior source told the channel earlier in the day that there is no communication “with the Israeli side about the claims of the existence of tunnels along the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip.”

Deployment of Israeli troops in the Philadelphi Corridor — a 14 kilometer (8.7 miles)-long wide strip of land along the border between Gaza and Egypt — without prior agreement between both countries would be a breach of the peace treaty, an Egyptian official told CNN in February, adding that the government had not approved such a deployment.

On Wednesday, the Israeli military says they have established “operational control” over the Philadelphi Corridor. Israeli military spokesperson Daniel Hagari said the military is carrying out an operation and the corridor and neutralizing 20 tunnels. Earlier Wednesday, an Israeli official said the 20 tunnels crossed into Egypt, some of which are new, and that the information has been passed on to Egypt.

CNN is unable to independently verify the Israeli claims of control and has reached out to the Egyptian government for comment.
