Israeli strikes on Syrian military targets at the weekend killed at least 15 soldiers and dozens more were unaccounted for, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights watchdog said on Monday.

"At least 15 soldiers were killed, and dozens more are missing" after the strikes near Damascus early on Sunday, said the Observatory's Rami Abdel Rahman.

"These three sites (targeted) would usually have around 150 soldiers in them, but it's not clear if they were all there at the time of the strikes."
