Israel targeted Iranian terror assets overnight Saturday in Quneitra in the Syrian Golan Heights, according to Israeli media reports.
Iran is working to seize control of an extensive network of Syrian military industry facilities.
Shrapnel from the Syrian missile was found in the southern Bedouin town of Rahat.
The military dropped leaflets in the targeted area warning the Syrian army against working with Iranian terror proxies.
Report: Israeli defense official says there have been “significant movements” of Iranian military equipment into Syria “under the guise of shipments of earthquake aid.”
Israel’s internal debate will not detract one iota from our determination and ability to act against our enemies, the prime minister said.
The strike is the second in Syria attributed to Israel in as many weeks.
The IDF has conducted hundreds of attacks against Iran-backed forces trying to establish a foothold in Syria.
Operatives are continuously gathering pre-attack intelligence on Israel, the Alma Center says.
More than a dozen people are also said to have been injured in the attack, which targeted a building in the city’s Kafr Sousa neighborhood.
