TEHRAN (FNA)- The Israeli fighter jets fired US-made guided missiles in the recent strikes against the Syrian army positions in Aleppo and Hama provinces, a military source claimed on Wednesday.

The Arabic-language Zaman al-Wasl quoted the military source as saying on Wednesday that the Israeli air force has used US-made missiles during the Sunday night raid at Aleppo and Hama.

He added that the same missiles were used in Israel's previous attacks against Syria.

Syrian state media reported on Sunday night that "enemy missiles" had struck government targets in Hama and Aleppo provinces. The reports did not mention any casualties from the missile strikes, or who was suspected of the attack.

In a news flash, state television said the missile attacks took place at 10:30 pm local time. Earlier, state television said successive blasts were heard in rural Hama province and that authorities were investigating the cause.

The Syrian army positions came under missile attacks in Hama and Aleppo provinces two weeks after the trilateral attacks by the US, the UK and France.

Several missiles hit the weapons depots in Southern Hama and al-Malekieh region North of Aleppo airport, field sources reported.

No one has yet admitted the responsibility for the attack, but militants' news outlets and social media networks said the US has fired the missiles from Al-Tanf border crossing in Eastern Syria.

Some other sources said that the missile attacks were carried out by the US and in response to the Syrian army's advances East of Euphrates against the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Other sources said that Israel that had previously targeted the T4 airbase in Homs province where the Iranian troops had been stationed has been behind the missile attacks.

There is yet no official confirmation on the origin of the missile launches.

Syria's Tishrin website also reported that nine ballistic missiles were fired from the US and British bases in Northern Jordan at the Syrian army's military positions in Hama and Aleppo.

The Arabic-language Sputnik also reported that 12 soldiers have been killed and many more wounded during the missile attack on the arms depot of the Syrian army's Brigade 47 in Hama countryside.

Further reports this morning revealed that more than a dozen civilians who lives in a village adjacent to one of the Hama depot have been killed in the raid.
