On the night of May 4th-5th Israel hit several Syrian Arab Republic facilities with jet bombers and/or rockets.  Arabic language media has no information which Western media has not reported already so besides videos there is little detailed information out there.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz has a general map showing Israeli strikes inside Syria since 2007.

From Haartet's Twitter Feed.
Unofficially and unconfirmed, amateur cartographers have filled the news void.  IsraeliAffairs Twitter feed posted a map claiming to show the multiple locations of Israeli strikes on May 4th-5th while Climateviewer Twitter feed featured a map claiming Israel used a nuclear bomb.
