Syrian state TV has confirmed Israeli air strikes on the Golan Heights but said only slight damage was done.
According to Reuters, the state TV report quoted a military source as saying that "several missiles" had targeted a transportation centre and a public building in the Quneitra area of the Syrian Golan Heights.
A monitoring group had earlier reported casualties. Israel's army said the strikes were a response to cross-border rocket fire from Syria earlier this week.

The United States is "deeply concerned" about Israel's plans to build 300 new homes in a Jewish settlement on the occupied West Bank and hundreds of homes in east Jerusalem.
State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement:
The United States continues to view settlements as illegitimate and we strongly oppose steps to advance construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Settlement expansion threatens the two-state solution and calls into question Israel's commitment to a negotiated resolution to the conflict.

Israeli television news reports said air raid sirens sounded after at least five rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed in southern Israel.
There were no reports of damage or injuries. The remnants of one rocket were found near the port city of Ashdod, about 20 km north of the Gaza Strip, an ambulance service spokesman said. No group in the Gaza Strip had immediately taken responsibility. Israeli media speculated that it may have been an errant rocket that was not intentionally aimed at Israeli territory.
