Watch: CCTV at Mount Hermon shows impact of rocket fired from Syria
CCTV at the Mount Hermon ski resort recorded the impact of one of the rockets fired from Syria to Israel yesterday evening.
Two rockets were fired on Saturday from Syria towards the Golan Heights causing no casualties, the IDF said.
According to initial assessments, the fire did not emanate from an anti-tank missile and was not mistakenly aimed at Israel.
The IDF also determined that it was not errant fire spilling over from internal fighting in Syria.
One of the rockets struck an unpopulated area near a military outpost on Mount Hermon, while the other fell short and exploded in Syria.
In response, the IDF struck a number of military targets in Syria. IAF planes and helicopters bombed a number of targets, including two artillery batteries, a number of observation and intel posts near the border, and an SA-2 air defense battery.
Syrian state media said rockets were fired by Israel into the province of Quneitra, which borders Israel. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights meanwhile reported that the strike had targeted Iranian and Hezbollah forces.
According to Arab reports, three Syrian soldiers had been killed and seven injured in the attack.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
“Yesterday I held security consultations in wake of the firing at the Golan Heights in which I instructed the IDF to take strong action.
We will not tolerate firing at our territory and will respond with great force to any aggression against us.
This has been my consistent policy and this is what we will continue to do for the security of Israel.”
