Israel struck multiple targets in southern Syria on Wednesday morning, according to Israeli and Syrian media reports.

Syrian state media agency SANA reported that Israeli missiles hit a target near the town of Hader in the northern Quneitra countryside at around 3 a.m., while Israel’s Kan News later reported a second strike, which it said had targeted a Syrian military observation post.

There were no reports of casualties in either strike, though SANA reported that the earlier strike caused material damage.

On April 24, Syrian state media said four Syrian soldiers were killed and three others wounded in an Israeli airstrike on targets in the Damascus area.

On April 17, the Russian military released what it claimed were details of a previous Israeli airstrike on targets in the Damascus region, reportedly as part of a retaliation for condemnations of Russia’s actions in Ukraine by Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.
