BEIRUT (AFP) -- At least 10 Syrian soldiers were killed in Israeli overnight air raids on positions near the Israeli-held Golan Heights, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said on Monday.

"At least 10 Syrian soldiers were killed in Israeli raids against military positions next to the occupied part of the Golan. Nine missiles were fired by aircraft and at least two tanks and two artillery batteries were destroyed," the Observatory said.

The teenage son of a defense ministry contractor was killed on the Golan on Sunday when a blast hit the car he was traveling in with his father.

The victim was named as Mohammed Qaraqra, a Palestinian citizen of Israel from the northern village of Arabeh in the Galilee region, military radio said.
