Israel army launched strikes close to the disputed border with Syria as per the statement from the Israel defense force.
Israel’s military said 10 projectiles from inside Syria had hit the Golan and it responded with air strikes on the position they were launched from and on two Syrian army tanks, one as it was preparing to fire.
Israeli aircraft targeted three positions from which the projectiles were fired, the IDF said. The strikes included hits on two tanks belonging to the Syrian regime.
The Syrian military source said Israeli rocket fire had hit a residential building, causing a number of deaths and damage. The source did not mention Syrian fire into Israel and said the Israeli strike was in support of jihadist rebels.
As per the statement from the Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman. “As far as we are concerned, the Assad regime is responsible for what is happening in its territory and it will continue to bear the consequences if such events repeat themselves.”
This has escalated the tension between the 2 rival countries. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Mideast war.
