A missile strike on a military target in the coastal Syrian region of Latakia killed at least two people, a war monitor said Tuesday.

The strike, carried out on Monday, targeted ammunition depots on the site of the technical industries institute and killed two fighters, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The Russian defence ministry said four Israeli F-16 jets had hit infrastructure in Latakia province, a stronghold of President Bashar al-Assad.
