YERUSHALAYIM — Israeli warplanes attacked targets in the coastal Syrian city of Tartus and along the Qalamoun Mountains near the border between Lebanon and Syria on Sunday night, according to Al Arabiya.

Three soldiers were killed and three others wounded, the Syrian state-run SANA broadcaster claimed.

The Syrian state-run SANA broadcaster claimed that the country’s air defenses were engaging “hostile targets” over Tartus, without elaborating.

Footage circulated online shows bright objects in the sky, which appear to be Syrian air defense missiles engaging the Israeli jets or their missiles.

The strikes were reportedly carried out by Israeli jets from over Lebanon.

The reported strikes come just days after Syrian media said that Israeli tanks had shot at  observation posts in Syria’s Quneitra region near the border with Israel, injuring three people. Opposition-affiliated media said that the posts belonged to Hezbollah.
