Syrian state TV confirms Israeli strikes on Golan, reporting that only material damage had been inflicted.

The IDF launched artillery fire at targets in Syria on Thursday evening hours after four rockets were fired from the country deep into northern Israel, with the IDF saying Syria would suffer the consequences for rocket strikes on the Israeli home front.

Two of the rockets struck open areas in the Golan Heights and two others landed in the Upper Galilee far from the border with Syria. The IDF said they were fired at Israel from the center of the Syrian Golan Heights.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Office said Thursday that “we see Syria as responsible [for the rockets] and they will suffer the consequences.”
