Israel has not confirmed or denied involvement.

The military directive Tuesday came "following the identification of irregular activity of Iranian forces in Syria".

The strikes, "probably Israeli", targeted a military airport in Aleppo in the country's north and Brigade 47 in Hama, where Iranian forces are stationed, the Observatory said.

The Israeli military said it viewed the attack "with great severity".
