One Syrian soldier was killed and several others were injured in an Israeli airstrike on a military base in the Damascus province near the Zambani Valley, according to the Syrian state news agency SANA.
A military source announced through the news agency that:
“Today at 01:30 (22:30 GMT), the Israeli enemy carried out an airstrike with rocket fire from northern Galilee, targeting a unit of our air defense forces in the area of Nabi Havel”
“The Syrian air defense managed to intercept many of the Israeli missiles but we also had wounded and one dead,” the same source told SANA.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the number of injured had risen to five, two of them in critical condition.
Israeli airstrikes targeted and destroyed Hezbollah rockets and ammunition near the town of Zabadani on the borders with Lebanon, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Israel has refused to confirm or deny the attack.
“We do not comment on foreign media reports,” an Israeli military spokesman told AFP.
