The Israeli army said Tuesday it carried out overnight attacks on sites belonging to the Syrian army in southern Syria.

A military statement said airstrikes targeted Syrian army posts in the town of Mhajjah, in response to rocket fire on Israel-occupied Golan Heights.

Another Syrian military post was shelled with artillery, the statement said.

There were no reports yet of casualties or damage.

Several Israeli attacks were reported in Syria in recent months amid Tel Aviv's ongoing offensive on the Gaza Strip, which killed more than 33,200 people since last October following a Hamas attack.

Last week, at least seven members of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps were killed, including two top generals, in a suspected Israeli missile attack on the Iranian Consulate in Damascus.
