At least five soldiers and eleven other people who took part in fighting have been killed in Israeli airstrikes targeting weapons depots and military positions in eastern Syria.
The Israeli air force has carried out more than 18 attacks on several targets in the area from the city of Deir al-Zor to the Boukamal desert on the border with Syria, the exile group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Wednesday.
It is not known what nationality the 11 people, who are referred to as warriors, have.
Last week, three Iranian-backed fighters were killed in an Israeli rocket attack on Syria.
The targets of the regular attacks on Syria are Iranian forces, Lebanese and Iran-backed Hezbollah and Syrian forces. Israel claims that it is trying to prevent Iranian-backed groups from gaining a foothold in the border areas between the two countries.
