BEIRUT (AP) - An activist group says Israeli air raids overnight on Syrian military facilities killed at least 10 government troops.

The Israeli military said it hit nine targets early Monday inside Syria. The airstrikes were in response to a cross-border attack the previous day that killed an Israeli teenager.

The director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdurrahman, said the nine Israeli strikes hit seven different Syrian military bases.

He said the air raids destroyed two tanks, two artillery batteries and the headquarters of Syria’s 90th brigade.

The Observatory collects its information through a network of activists inside Syria

The Syrian government has not commented on the airstrikes.

Israel has carried out airstrikes on Syria several times over the past three years.
