In response to at least ten projectiles launched from Syria that landed inside Israeli territory, the Israel Air Force on Saturday carried out retaliatory strikes targeting the positions from which the mortars originated.
The Israeli military released footage Saturday evening of several air strikes carried out against Syrian military targets after numerous mortar shells hit the Golan Heights from Syria.
The black-and-white video showed strikes against two Syrian tanks as well as a heavy machine gun.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor which has been reporting on Syria’s six-year war, said two Syrian soldiers were killed in the Israeli strikes. Syrian officials confirmed several deaths, though they did not provide details.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman warned that the regime would continue to “suffer the consequences” of any attack on Israel emanating from its territory.
