Israel Air Force strikes Syrian weapon sites in response to mortar fire

The Israel Air Force on Thursday carried out a number of air strikes against targets in Syria in response to a Syrian mortar shell that exploded in the Golan heights on Wednesday evening, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.
The strikes targeted rocket launchers located in parts of the Syrian-occupied parts of the Golan Heights -- areas which are under the authority of the Syrian government. 
The IDF said that it holds the Syrian government responsible for anything that happens on its territory and ""will not permit any attempt to threaten Israel's sovereignty or the safety of its people."
