Israel attacks Syrian regime military base, kills 3 soldiers
An Israeli attack against a military base for the Syrian pro-government National Defence Forces in southern Syria killed three NDF members on Sunday, Reuters quoted the NDF militia and a monitoring group as saying.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitoring group, said it remained unclear if the source of the bombardment in Quneitra province was an air strike or shelling.

The NDF said the attack struck its military camp in the countryside of Quneitra, which sits near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, territory that Israel captured from Syria in a 1967 war.

Rebel groups fighting President Bashar al-Assad's government in the Syrian conflict hold swathes of Quneitra, while the army and pro-government forces control another part of the province.
