Syria News Alert

Syrian air defenses intercept projectiles over Jableh (Latakia province) February 19; similar incidents possible over the near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 2/19/2020, 12:00 AM until 2/19/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Damascus). COUNTRY/REGION Jableh, Latakia province


Syrian air defenses reportedly intercepted incoming missiles over Jableh (Latakia province) on Wednesday, February 19. The target of the projectiles remains unclear as of Wednesday evening (local time), and no claim of responsibility has been issued. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damages. 

Similar incidents are possible in Latakia province over the near term.


To date, the Syrian conflict involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals.


Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
