Israel carried out air strikes near Syria's capital of Damascus, wounding two Syrian soldiers, Syrian state news agency SANA said early Wednesday.
"At around 00:25 at dawn, the Israeli enemy carried out an air assault with missile bursts from the north of the occupied Syrian Golan, targeting certain positions in the vicinity of Damascus," SANA said, citing a military source.
The strikes targeted military positions near the airport in the town of Dimas as well as the Beirut-Damascus highway west of the capital, where elite members of the Syrian army are stationed, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor.
The NGO, which has a vast network of sources in the war-torn country, said the strikes also targeted warehouses belonging to the pro-Iranian Hezbollah militant group.
The incident was the 20th Israeli raid so far this year, the Observatory said.
Earlier this month, Israel carried out air strikes near the government-held city of Homs, SANA said.
