Not less than four Iranian - backed militia have been killed and seven others wounded by Israeli strikes, according to the Britain -based Syrian observatory for Human Rights.

The rights group which monitors violence in the war - torn country, said the dead were all Syrian nationals working for Iranian militias and the Lebanese shiite group Hezbollah.

The SOHR's account was, however, different from that of the state - run Syria News Agency, that a Syrian soldier was killed and three others wounded.

The Syrian TV reported that shortly after midnight ,Israeli strikes hit the eastern countryside if Homs, targeting a communication tower and surrounding points.

An Israeli military spokesperson said they won't leave a comment on 'reports in foreign media'.

Israeli strikes in Syria are seen as attempts to prevent Iran, one of Syrian president Bashar Al - Assad's main allies from building up it's military influence in the region.

The dead are said to be Syrian nationals working for Iranian militias and the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah.
