Syrian soldier injured in Israeli strike, Syrian army says

Israeli missiles launched from the occupied Golan Heights towards Syria in the early hours of Sunday wounded a Syrian soldier, the Syrian army said.

State news agency SANA, carrying a statement from a military source, said that "the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack… targeting a number of points in the southern region", without specifying where.

It said a soldier was wounded in the attack and reported "material losses", adding that air defence systems shot down some of the missiles. 

Earlier this month, an Israeli strike killed an Iranian Revolutionary Guard and two other people in Banias on Syria's Mediterranean coast, reports said, in the third consecutive day of Israeli attacks on the country.
