Israel launched a strike on the territory of Syria in the area of the Golan heights. Information about the strike was officially confirmed by the press service of the Israeli army.
вЂњRecently, Israel defense forces helicopter gunships attacked Syrian army targets in southern Syria in response to earlier attacks on the Golan Heights,вЂќ the report said. It clarifies that the targets included observation posts and вЂњintelligence gathering facilitiesвЂќ located on them.
The Israeli military has promised to continue taking decisive action to prevent violations of Israel's sovereignty. The report emphasizes that the Syrian regime is responsible for the attack. The Syrian Sana news agency reported that two soldiers were injured.
Earlier on Friday, explosions were heard from the Syrian side of the border in the Golan heights, which damaged a car and a building on the Israeli side. Israel very rarely accepts responsibility for strikes on Syria. This is mainly the case when it comes to retaliatory actions.
This week, the situation on Israel's Northern borders (with Lebanon and Syria) has sharply escalated. This happened after the shelling of an area South of Damascus on Monday. Syria blamed Israel for this, but the latter traditionally refrained from commenting.
