At least one Israeli missile struck a site in southern Syria, the country’s state news agency reported early Wednesday.
The attack targeted an area near the town of Hader, north of Quneitra in the Syrian Golan Heights, just across the border from Israel, the SANA news agency reported.
There were no reports of injuries, but material damage was caused, according to SANA.
There was no immediate word on what sites were hit.
A Twitter account tracking Israeli military activity in Syria claimed four missiles were launched from a warplane, causing damage to the area.
Video purportedly from the strike shared by the same account showed projectiles streaking through the sky, followed by loud explosions.

The claims could not be verified independently. There was no immediate comment from the Israel Defense Forces, which does not normally comment on individual strikes.
Israel has carried out hundreds of sorties over Syria in the last decade, mostly to stymie attempts by Iranian forces to transfer weapons or establish a foothold. On Saturday, Syria accused Israel of carrying out strikes in Deir Ezzor, one of several areas where Iranian militiamen are thought to be deployed.
In the past, strikes on areas closer to the Israel border in the Syrian Golan have targeted specific individuals suspected of plotting attacks against Israel or in the midst of carrying them out.
In February, Israel allegedly bombed an observation post and “finance building” in the Quneitra area. The military also dropped leaflets over the area warning Syrian regulars that they would be targeted if they allow Iranian proxy group Hezbollah to operate in the region.
The flyer directly named the Hezbollah official that the IDF believes is facilitating the relationship between the terror group and the Syrian military, Jawad Hasham, the son of Hajj Hasham, who leads Hezbollah’s efforts along the Syrian border.
The flyer said Syrian soldiers “repeatedly” allowed Hajj Jawad Hashem “to breach the infrastructure of the Syrian army, including… in the finance building and Rwihinah base,” where the overnight strikes took place.
“Those who cooperate with Hezbollah… are targets,” it warned.
The Israeli strikes have continued in Syrian airspace, which is largely controlled by Russia, even as ties with Moscow have deteriorated in recent weeks.
Israel has found itself at odds with Russia as it has increasingly supported Ukraine, while seeking to maintain freedom of movement in Syria’s skies.
