The IDF struck infrastructure belonging to the Syrian Army, including mortar launchers, in response to rocket fire earlier in the evening from Syria toward Israel, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said early Wednesday morning in a rare statement.
Syrian media reported that the strikes targeted southern Syria's Daara region at both a radar site near Qarfa and warehouses of the 12th Armored Brigade in Izraa. The Syrian army announced on Wednesday morning that 11 Syrian soldiers had been killed in the strikes.
The IDF rarely takes responsibility for strikes attributed to Israel in Syria.
Sirens sounded in the towns of Neot Golan, Bnei Yehuda, and Givat Yoav, to the east of Lake Kinneret on Tuesday evening, with the IDF saying that two rockets were launched at Israel from Syria and fell in open fields.
Israeli artillery forces struck the source of rocket fire from Syria on the Golan Heights on Tuesday evening, the military confirmed.
IDF strikes terror cells in Lebanon
The IDF targeted a terrorist cell that fired anti-tank missiles at Israel from within Lebanese territory, it said on Tuesday.
The Israeli military responded with artillery forces to anti-tank fire directed at the northern border towns of Shutla and Menara, adding that it destroyed the weaponry used to launch the missiles.
