Israel Strikes Syrian Military Bases Amid Golan Heights Attack



Israeli aircraft strikes Syrian military targets on Monday. The Israeli army confirmed the attack in a rare statement.

Syrian state media reported “material damage” at military outposts near the capital Damascus due to strikes.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) mentioned that the strikes were retaliation for a bombing attempt. IDF mentioned that it had killed 4 men who were planting explosives near the Israeli-occupied sector of Golan Heights late on Sunday.

Military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus said that they cannot say earlier if the men belonged to a certain organization. But he said that Israel held “the Syrian regime accountable”.

The IDF said in the statement that the strikes “observation posts and intelligence collection systems, anti-aircraft artillery facilities and command and control systems” in Syrian army bases in Qunaitra.

“The IDF holds the Syrian government responsible for all activities on Syrian soil, and will continue operating with determination against any violation of Israeli sovereignty”.

Syria’s official news agency reported that Syrian forces had activated its air defenses on Monday against “hostile targets” near the capital Damascus.
