An Israeli tank struck Syrian territory in Quneitra, near the Golan Heights border, Syrian state news agency SANA said on Monday, without providing further details.

The media outlet cited its own reporter, who said the strikes only caused "material damage."

The state-run outlet said the tank targeted a hospital and observation post "with a number of shells."

Quneitra was recaptured by Bashar Assad's regime forces in July 2018, having been held by a rebel faction for the majority of the country's seven-year-long civil war. The area sits some 500 feet from the 1974 internationally-mediated ceasefire line.


In late December, IDF forces fired at armed suspects approaching the Israeli border from Syria.

Israel routinely hits Iranian targets in Syria, with officials taking credit for strikes near Damascus in January. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly said that Israel will not allow Iranian entrenchment in Syria.
