“Three civilians were wounded and a civilian petrol station caught fire and a number of fuel tanks and trucks were burned,” it said, adding that Syrian air defences had intercepted some of the missiles.

During more than a decade of civil war in Syria, Israel has launched hundreds of air strikes on its territory.
