An Israeli missile strike south of the Syrian capital, a Britain-based war monitor said on Tuesday.
The missile attack has killed five soldiers on Monday night. It hit on weapons depots and military positions belonging to Syrian regime forces south of Damascus, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The attack wounded at least seven Syrian troops, according to the official SANA news agency, which said the missiles were launched by warplanes over the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
It added that 11 combatants were wounded in total — four non-Syrian fighters and seven Syrian troops, of which two were in critical condition.
A military spokesman in Israel told AFP that its army "does not comment on foreign reports".
Israel has launched hundreds of strikes in Syria since the start of the country's civil war in 2011.
It has targeted government troops, allied Iranian forces and fighters from the Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah, saying its goal is to end Tehran's military presence in Syria.
It rarely confirms details of its operations in Syria but says Iran's presence in support of the regime is a threat and that Israel will keep up strikes.
The nine-year-old conflict in Syria has killed more than 380,000 people and displaced more than half of the country's pre-war population.
The raid killed four people, including two civilians, said the war monitor, although it was unable to determine whether the other two deaths were civilians or soldiers.
In a rare statement acknowledging attacks inside Syria, the Israeli army said it struck Syrian facilities used in targeting Israeli aircraft, including a radar and anti-aircraft batteries.
The missiles were launched at 12:30 a.m. (Tuesday 2230 GMT) from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, on the other side of a UN-supervised buffer zone. An Israeli military spokesperson declined to comment on the attack.
