The IDF reportedly launched an attack against several Syrian regime targets near the Golan Heights on Saturday in retaliation for fighting that spilled over into Israeli territory earlier in the day.

According to The Jerusalem Post's sister publication Maariv, the IDF struck two tanks belonging to the Syrian army and another position from which a "projectile" was launched into Israeli territory.

The IDF said that spillover from the Syrian civil war is treated with the utmost severity and noted that it "will not tolerate any attempt to harm the sovereignty of the State of Israel and the security of its residents."

The IDF added that it "views the Syrian regime as ultimately responsible for what is happening in its territory."
