At least four civilians were killed and 21 injured in Israeli missile strikes near the Syrian cities of Damascus and Homs, Syrian state media said.

The Syrian military responded to missiles launched by Israeli warplanes, the Sana news agency said.

Israeli jets targeted military bases from Lebanese airspace at around midnight on Sunday, it reported.

The facilities hit were linked with Iranian forces, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a Britain-based monitoring group, said.

In the Homs area, a research centre and a military airport where Iranian and Hezbollah personnel are based, were targeted, the Observatory said.

Near Damascus, a base hosting the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) and a research facility in Jamraya were struck.

IRGC and Hezbollah members were injured in the strikes, the Observatory said.
