According to the Israel Defence Force (IDF) the men, believed to have belonged to a local Islamist rebel group affiliated to Isis, crossed into Israeli-controlled territory before 11pm.

Israeli soldiers patrol the cease-fire line between Israel and Syria, as seen from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

He said the men hit had assault rifles and bomb belts and moved in a battle formation: "We assume they were on a terrorist mission and that they were trying to infiltrate into Israel".

Israel has sought to remain out of direct involvement in Syria's civil war, but it admits carrying out dozens of air strikes there to stop what it says are deliveries of advanced weaponry to its Lebanese enemy Hezbollah. Russian Federation says United Nations peacekeepers return to frontier between Syria, Israeli-occupied Golan Heights for first time in years.

An earlier Israeli military statement said the air strike took place on the Syrian-held Golan.

The Israel Defense Forces said on Thursday it had targeted and killed seven "armed terror operatives" just 650 feet from the Israeli border on the Golan Heights.

A series of blistering offensives backed by Moscow and Tehran has forced the rebels out of many of their strongholds, putting Assad's government back in control of almost two-thirds of the country.

"From our perspective, the situation is returning to how it was before the civil war, meaning there is a real address, someone responsible and central rule", Lieberman said.

It said the new Russian posts would be handed over to the Syrian government once the situation had stabilised. He said a preliminary assessment was that the infiltrators were Daesh militants.

Separately, the Jordan military said it had clashed with encroaching Khaled Bin Walid Army fighters for 24 hours between Tuesday and Wednesday, killing an unspecified number of them.

Israeli troops were on "high alert and readiness" following the strike. The army's announcement came shortly after Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman toured a Patriot missile defence battery in northern Israel during a military preparedness drill.

Jordan has been in discussion with Russian authorities, Safadi said, and will respond to Syria's request "positively", in a way that supports Jordanian and Syrian interests.
