Air strikes by the Israeli Air Forces left 10 Syrian soldiers dead, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The strikes came in the wake of an attack by the Syrian Army yesterday that killed a 13 year old Israeli boy and wounded three Israeli civilians, including the boy’s father.

At least two tanks and two artillery batteries were destroyed in the Israeli air strike. Nine missiles were fired by Israeli jet fighters in the attack, the IDF said in a statement to media. “The IDF targeted nine Syrian army positions in response to the earlier attack that originated in Syria killing an Israeli teenager and injuring two other Israeli civilians,” an army spokesperson said.

The Israelis included two contractors who were working on the security fence in the Golan Heights on Israel’s northern border at the time of the attack. The attack occurred near Tel Hazeka, just south of Kuneitra, near the central Golan Heights.

Israeli tanks returned fire shortly after the civilians were wounded, aiming at Kuneitra, which is under Syria’s control.
