Israel strikes Syrian military near Golan Heights

IDF forces struck Syrian regime targets for the second day in a row Sunday after several projectiles landed in open areas on the Israeli side of the border.

In an earlier statement, the Israeli military described the shellfire into Israel as errant fire but it later called it an "unacceptable breach" of sovereignty.

Israeli aircraft targeted three positions from which the projectiles were fired, the IDF said. No injuries were reported.

However, it is widely believed that Israel often carried out airstrikes on weapons convoys in Syria, and has been providing medical treatment to hundreds of wounded Syrians who reached the border. According to Al Mayadeen channel citing a source, at least two Syrian soldiers were killed in the airstrike. "We are not prepared to accept any spillover or trickle of fire from any front whatsoever".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the strike was in accordance with Israel's policy.

Israel annexed the Golan area following the Six-Day War in 1967, but the move was never recognized by the global community.

The Syrian army and allied forces repelled a massive assault by the terrorists near al-Baath City in southern Quneitra Province and inflicted heavy losses on them, Syria's official SANA news agency quoted the source as saying Saturday. "We will respond strongly to any firing at our territory", he stated.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened to destroy Syrian air defense systems in March, after Damascus fired ground-to-air missiles at Israeli warplanes carrying out strikes.

The Golan Heights incident prompted Israel to file a complaint with the United Nations.
