According to Syrian state media, the three soldiers were killed in the early hours by an Israeli drone strike and the drone involved was later shot down by Syrian government forces.However Lebanon's Al Mayadeen radio network, which is affiliated with Hezbollah, denied Syria's claim and instead said that the three soldiers were killed by Syrian rebel forces.
