Three Syrian soldiers were killed and ten were injured in Monday morning's IDF strike on Syrian military targets.

Israeli jets and artillery "Tamuz" missiles struck nine targets belonging to the Syrian military in retaliation to a cross-border missile attack which killed a 13-year-old Israeli boy on Sunday.

Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime has not responded to the Israeli airstrikes.

The targets included command posts and Syrian firing positions, the IDF said. "We identified accurate strikes on the targets," it added.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Monday that the Assad regime is responsible for Sunday's cross-border missile attack.

"We see the regime of Bashar Assad and the Syrian military as responsible for what occurs in the territory under their control, and we will respond aggressively and harshly against any provocation and violation of our sovereignty," Ya'alon said in a statement.
