    The IDF attacked a number of military targets in Syria overnight Saturday in response to the firing of two rockets from Syrian territory at Mount Hermon in the northern Golan Heights on Saturday night, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.

    One of the rockets that had been fired from Syrian was located in Israeli territory, the statement said.

    According to the statement, Israeli warplanes and helicopters attacked a number of military targets belonging to the Syrian army, including two artillery batteries, a number of observation and intelligence posts on the Golan Heights, and a SA-2 air defense battery.

    During the attack, an IDF air defense system was launched following Syrian anti-aircraft fire. No explosions were identified in Israeli territory.

    “The IDF views the Syrian regime as responsible for any action against Israel from Syrian territory and will act aggressively against any action from its territory. The IDF will continue to act against any attempt to harm the citizens of Israel and its territory and is obligated to protect the security of Israeli citizens,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.

    A Syrian military source quoted on Syria’s news agency said that three soldiers were killed and seven wounded in the Israeli air strike.

    Earlier, Syrian media reported that the country’s air defense systems had been activated against “enemy targets” in southern Damascus.

    It was also reported that explosions were heard in the area.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Syrian opposition organization based in Britain, reported that “Israel attacked a concentration of forces belonging to Hezbollah and Iran in the suburbs of Damascus.”

    On Saturday night, two projectiles were launched from Syria towards Mount Hermon. There were no injuries.

    The IDF is investigating, but believes that the missiles were intentionally aimed at Israel, since there has been no fighting on the Syrian side of the border.

    Initially it was believed that one of the missiles may have exploded in Israeli territory, while the other exploded in Syria. Later, it was confirmed that both exploded in the IDF military zone near Mount Hermon.

    On Monday, the IDF confirmed that it had launched an air strike targeting a Syrian missile launcher following an attack on an Israeli aircraft. The missile did not strike the plane and landed in Syria.
