Israeli Military Strikes Syria Targets in Response to Mortar Fire

Earlier, mortar shells were fired into Israeli territory in apparent spillover from Syria war.

The Israel Defense Forces fired artillery at two Syrian army targets on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights on Tuesday.

The strike came in response to mortar shells that were fired into Israeli territory on Tuesday morning, as the fighting in Syria spilled over across the border. 


"The IDF holds the Syrian army responsible for what is taking place in its territory, and will not tolerate any attempt to undermine the sovereignty of the State of Israel, or the security of its citizens," the IDF said in a statement.
