Israel attacked "Syrian" military positions in the country’s south early Sunday, killing three "soldiers" and wounding seven others, Assad-run media reported.
Assad news agency SANA quoted an unnamed military Assad official as saying the attacks struck military positions in the southern region of Quneitra, near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. They also caused material damage, it said.
An Israeli military spokesman confirmed on Twitter that Israel targeted several military positions in Syria. He said the targets included two artillery batteries, several observation and intelligence posts and an SA2 air defense unit.
The attacks came hours after the Israeli military said two projectiles were fired from Syria toward the Golan Heights.
