Eleven people were killed in alleged Israeli airstrikes near Damascus on Monday night.

Syrian air defenses intercepted missiles over the southern region of the country on Monday near Damascus, state television cited a Syrian military source as saying.

The strikes reportedly killed seven Iranian-backed militants of non-Syrian nationalities and three Syrian soldiers, according to SOHR. A civilian woman was killed by shrapnel in the strikes as well.

The state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying that only two people were killed, and seven were injured.

The agency said a civilian woman had been killed and her husband injured in the blast.

It was not immediately clear if she was among the two deaths initially reported by the military source, who had said that seven soldiers were wounded.

While Syrian officials are accusing Israel of being behind the attack, the IDF has not confirmed the attack.
