Israel fired several surface-to-surface missiles toward Syrian military positions in the country’s south early on Wednesday causing "material damage," the Syrian military said in a statement.
State media reported that an unnamed Syrian military official as saying that the missiles were fired from Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, and struck areas around the nearby town of Quneitra.
The statement didn't give details about the positions that came under attack.
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.
It added that the attack that occurred shortly after midnight caused material damage but no casualties.
The attack came nearly a week after Syrian state media reported a similar Israeli missile attack on an area south of the capital Damascus that also caused no casualties.
Israel did not comment on the attack. It has made hundreds of strikes on targets inside government-controlled parts of Syria over the past decade of its civil war, but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations.
Israel has acknowledged, however, that it targets bases of Iran-allied militias, such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah that fights on the side of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces.
Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Mideast war and later annexed the area. Most of the world does not recognize the annexation, though the Trump administration declared the territory to be part of Israel.
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.
Syrian Air Defenses thwarted an Israeli attack on Tal al-Hara in southern Syria and shot down a number of them, Syrian state news agency SANA said early on Wednesday.
After targeting the outskirts of the capital Damascus, Israel "resumed its aggression and launched several missiles against the east of Quneitra province killing three people and wounding seven other soldiers", the official SANA news agency reported.
The video was shared by adviser to the Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs, Anton Gerashchenko on Twitter with the caption: "Unbreakable... A little girl sings the Ukrainian anthem while she is getting her bandages.”
Two of the four were shot dead by “bullets to the chest,” and another by “a bullet to the head,” the medics said, reporting the deaths on Thursday took the toll to 108 from months of protest-related violence.
