DAMASCUS, Syria – 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.

SANA quoted an unnamed military official as saying that the airstrike near the town of Masyaf occurred in the early hours of Saturday.

It says Israeli warplanes fired missiles toward Syria from Lebanon's airspace and that Syrian air defenses shot down some of them.

Israel has in recent months acknowledged it has been striking Iranian targets in Syria. The last such strikes that Israel announced were in late March.

There is no immediate comment from Israel.
