Syria's state news agency SANA reported on Wednesday that an act of "Israeli aggression" was carried out as missiles hit targets near the village of Khader in the southern Quneitra province.

No casualties were reported.

Syrian state news reported an airstrike in Deir el-Zour on Saturday, the second reported within a week in the eastern province. No information was provided on those responsible for the attack. 

Iran-backed militia groups and regime forces control Deir el-Zour and have often been the target of Israeli warplanes in previous strikes. Israel has staged hundreds of strikes on targets in Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations.

This is a developing story with more details to come.
