At least three Syrian military servicemen have been killed in an Israeli missile attack on a Damascus suburb, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

According to the news agency, another soldier suffered wounds. Syria’s air defenses intercepted several missiles before they hit their targets, SANA said, adding that the attack had come from the Golan Heights.

The Israel Defense Forces said in a tweet that “the Iranian Quds Force and Syrian Armed Forces targets in Syria” were hit after improvised explosive devices had been placed “by the Alpha Line to hit Israeli troops.”.
