Israel reportedly bombed Iranian targets in Syria early Wednesday morning.

Syria's state-run news agency SANA reported that Syrian air defenses “confronted an Israeli aerial aggression in the southern region and downed a number of missiles.” The missiles came from the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and targeted southern Syria, causing damage and leading to three soldiers’ deaths and the injury of another soldier, according to SANA.

The pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that Israeli jets hit targets throughout southern Syria, including at the capital Damascus’ airport. The strikes hit a Syrian air defense center, weapon depots of Iran-backed militias and a Hezbollah position at the airport, according to the observatory.

The London-based organization, which relies on activists from within Syria for information, reported 10 casualties on Wednesday. They consisted of three Syrian soldiers, five members of the Al-Quds Corp militia and two other militia members. The observatory said the Al-Quds Corps members were likely Iranian and the other two were likely Lebanese or Iraqi.
