The last alleged Israeli attack was reported in Syria on February 28, with strikes against Iranian targets near the Syrian capital.

Young Israeli woman returned to Israel early Friday morning.
The young woman was healthy and did not seem to be hurt in Syria.
Blinken: "As a practical matter, the control of the Golan in that situation I think remains of real importance to Israel’s security."
The attack is the first one attributed to Israel to take place under President Joe Biden's administration.
"We continue to be vigilant at all of our borders. We have acted and will continue to act against anyone who tries to challenge us from near or far," the defense minister said.
IDF Spokesperson: "We are attacking against the host, and the visitor who is really not wanted."
Initial reports from Syria indicate three Syrian militants killed and one injured.
The operation was carried out following Syria's continued violation of the disengagement agreement with Israel since 1974. "We won't allow southern Syria to become southern Lebanon."
