June 25, 2017

Syria fired several mortar shells into the Golan on Saturday, leading to  a swift and deadly response by the Israeli Air Force (IAF).

Approximately ten hits were recorded inside Israel in open fields. No injuries or damage was reported. The IDF made a statement saying the mortars seemed to be errant spillover fire from fighting inside Syria.

Israel responded to the attack by launching several airstrikes at military targets belonging to the army of the regime of Bashar as Assad, the president of Syria.

The Hezbollah-affiliated al-Mayadeen TV station claimed two Syrian soldiers were killed in the strikes. Syrian officials confirmed “several” deaths, without giving details.

Israel also sent a formal letter of complaint to the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force over the incident.

“With the IDF action today, we are making our policy clear again,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said to the media. “We are not willing to accept any ‘drizzle’ [of fire] or ‘spillover’ on any front. We will react with force to any firing on our territory.”
