Syria's state news agency says an Israeli airstrike on a military position in the country's central province of Hama has wounded three soldiers and destroyed several buildings.

"Our air defence batteries intercepted some of the Israeli missiles", the source said, adding that the strike "wounded three combatants and destroyed buildings".

Several Iranian fighters were killed and 17 Syrian troops and members of allied forces were injured, the Observatory said.

It said the strikes targeted the military facility as well as a missile development center in a village near Masyaf and a nearby military base run by Iran-backed fighters.

An Israeli military spokesman declined to comment.
