Israeli strikes in Syria kill 8 pro-Iran fighters
The strikes targeted an arms depot and a position held by Iranian forces and their Lebanese ally Hezbollah near the capital Damascus, and a pro-Iran militia position in southern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The nationalities of the dead fighters was not immediately know, the Britain-based monitor said.
Syrian state media SANA earlier said an airstrike by "the Zionist enemy" had hit an area "south of Damascus" just before midnight local time.
SANA also reported another strike against the village of Rwihinah in the southern province of Quneitra near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, without reporting any casualties from either attack.
The Israeli army rarely acknowledges individual strikes and refused to comment when contacted by AFP Wednesday.
Last week, Israeli warplanes struck Iranian targets in Syria, in what the Israeli army called a retaliatory attack for what it said were explosive devices found near one of its bases on the Golan Heights.
Syria's war has killed more than 380,000 people and displaced millions more since starting in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.
