The IDF Spokesperson announced that the IDF attacked 14 Syrian positions in the central Golan Heights region late Thursday night using tanks, artillery and the Air Force. The IDF strikes were in response to the Syrian attacks that hit Israel earlier Thursday afternoon.
The initiating attack was done by an Islamic Jihad group, which is funded by Iran. The spokesperson said the attack was an infringement on Israeli sovereignty.
The IDF views the Syrian (Assad) government responsible for what goes on in its territory, and won’t countenance any attempt to harm Israel’s sovereignty or the security of its inhabitants.
