The Syrian army said the attacks caused material damage.

The Israeli military did not comment on reports of the attack, which is its standing policy.

On Tuesday evening, the Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the UN Security Council in protest of the airstrike on a Syrian military base, which the country alleges was carried out by Israel.

In addition to Arabs, extremist groups fighting in Syria include thousands of Asians, including many from central Asian states and members of the Muslim Uighur ethnic minority of China's Xinjiang province.

The Israeli military reportedly struck Syrian military targets twice during December but typically did not confirm the reports.

"There are people carrying all their belongings on cars everywhere, headed to the border", said one activist from Idlib who fled his home on Saturday for the Atmeh refugee camp near the Turkish border.

Shelling and air strikes on Ghouta, which government forces have besieged for four years, killed at least 20 civilians, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The three countries agreed past year to establish a "de-escalation zone" in the opposition-held Idlib province and surrounding region, which borders Turkey, but Syrian forces have since launched an offensive in the area.

Syria's army broke the siege of an army base encircled by opposition forces on the eastern outskirts of Damascus, state-run al-Ikhbariya TV and a war monitor reported on Sunday.

Government forces backed up by Russian air power are in the midst of conducting an operation to gain a foothold in the southeast of Idlib province.

More than 90 civilians were killed and over 200 others injured in attacks in de-escalation zones in Idlib in the past three weeks.

SANA gave no details about casualties or damage in the alleged attacks.

Amid faltering negotiations to end Syria's civil war, a ground assault on Idlib by Bashar Al Assad's forces takes the fight to the rebels in the one area they felt most secure against such an attack.

The defense ministry said that seven of the drones were shot down while the other six crashed or landed outside the base.
