Israel hit targets in Syria belonging to the government and allied Iranian forces, the “wide-scale strikes” responded to rockets fired by an Iranian unit into Israel, according to BBC.
Syria says two civilians died and that Syrian air defences shot down most of the missiles over Damascus. Other reports say the death toll was higher.
Israeli military said it had intercepted four rockets fired from Syria towards northern Israel. It said the rockets did not hit the ground.
Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria since the civil war broke out in 2011.
