The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) reported on Twitter on Saturday evening that two projectiles were fired from the Syrian territory in the direction of Mount Hermon in Northern Syria.

While the country rarely acknowledges its military activity inside Syria, the Israeli military did confirm attacking an anti-aircraft position inside its neighbor's territory earlier this week - after an invading Israeli warplane came under fire. The second landed in an open area in Israel near the Hermon.

The Israeli military said the targets included two artillery batteries, several observation and intelligence posts and an SA2 air defence unit.

Israel attacked Syrian military positions in the country's south early on Sunday, killing three soldiers and wounding seven others, Syria's state-run media reported.

Syrians flee their homes with their belongings in the town of Beit Sawa in Syria's besieged eastern Ghouta region on 4 March 2018, following reported air strikes. "There are no special instructions for civilians".

In recent years, Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria against its regional arch foe Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah group, which it calls the biggest threat to its borders.

The IDF Spokesperson's Office said that there had been no interception.

Israeli officials have repeatedly voiced concerns over Iran's presence in Syria and the smuggling of sophisticated weaponry to Hezbollah from Tehran to Lebanon via Syria, stressing that both are redlines for the Jewish state.

Iran and Hezbollah are fighting on the side of President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian war, and Israel says they are trying to turn Syria into a new front against Israelis. Israel later annexed the captured territory in a move unrecognized by most of the global community, except for the United States.
