Syrian state media reported that three Syrian soldiers were killed and seven were wounded in the strike, while the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that 10 were killed, seven of which were Iranian and Hezbollah militants.

Another outlet, aligned with the Assad regime, reported that five Syrians were killed. The Syrian government has not confirmed either report.

Israel said its air force struck a number of targets, including two artillery batteries, a number of observation posts near the border, and an air defense battery. 

In January, Israel's Iron Dome defense system intercepted a Syrian ground-to-ground missile over the ski resort. The Israeli military said on Monday that the missile was manufactured by Iran and launched by Iranian forces in Syria.
