Three Syrian troops were also wounded in the attack.

Seven Ambulances moved the slain troops and the wounded to the central city of Homs.

Experts said the Russian were informed of the Israeli attack to a void any casualties. The Iranian target was just 400 meters far from the Russian base near T4 airfiled.

Israel said on Saturday it had launched airstrikes against air defenses and Iranian targets in Syria after the regime army claimed shooting down an Israeli F-16 that crashed in northern Palestine, according to Reuters.

The Israeli military said the F-16 jet crashed during a mission to strike Iranian drone installations in Syria, where Iranian and Iran-backed militias have established a major foothold while fighting in support of Bashar al-Assad.

Israel said it had sent its jets into Syria after shooting down an Iranian drone flying over Israeli territory earlier on Saturday. Israel said its warplanes came under fire in Syria, though it was still unclear why the jet had come down.

"Twelve targets, including three aerial defense batteries and four Iranian targets that are part of Iran's military establishment in Syria were attacked," the Israeli military said in a statement.
