The Syrian army says Israeli air strikes against its military posts in the Golan Heights have killed one soldier and wounded seven others.
The army said the raids targeted three posts near the town of Quneitra on the edge of the Israeli-held part of the heights.
The statement also warned Israel against escalating the situation by repeating such "hostile acts". It said they "endanger the security and stability of the region".
Earlier in the day, the Israeli military said its war planes unleashed air strikes against Syrian army targets in response to a roadside bombing in the Golan Heights that wounded four Israeli soldiers the day before.
