BREAKING: Israeli combat helicopters fired at least two missiles toward an Assad position on the Syrian side of the northern Golan Heights where Iran-backed terrorists fired earlier at an IDF aircraft.
“Earlier today, munitions were fired from Syria toward Israel. In response, our aircraft struck military targets in southern Syria belonging to the Syrian Armed Forces. We hold the Syrian regime responsible and will respond to any violation of Israeli sovereignty,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
Following the strikes, the IDF closed off the airspace in northern Israel, 6 kilometers from the Lebanese border.
According to Syrian reports, Israeli helicopters targeted three positions in Quneitra. Two Muslim terrorists were reportedly wounded in the strikes.
