Syria has claimed that Israeli warplanes struck a military position in the Western region of the country.

Syrian state media has reported that the raid killed two soldiers, and caused physical damage to the base.

Reports, as yet unconfirmed, state that a chemical weapons facility was also hit in the attack.

The news follows a UN investigation into the Syrian government’s involvement in a chemical weapons attack on a rebel held town in the country in April which killed at least 83 people.

Although Syria has consistently denied its use of chemical weapons, Western intelligence has suggested that it continued their production in violation of a 2013 agreement to eliminate them.

Israel has not yet commented on the reports.
