The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on patrol within the Golan Heights

Israeli plane struck Syrian navy targets on Monday, the Israeli military confirmed in a uncommon assertion.

Syrian state media acknowledged the strikes, reporting unspecified “material damage” at navy outposts close to the capital Damascus.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) stated it was retaliation for a bombing try.

The IDF stated earlier it had killed 4 males planting explosives close to the Israeli-occupied sector of Golan Heights late on Sunday.

Surveillance footage confirmed the group engulfed in an explosion.

Military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus stated it was too quickly to say if the boys belonged to a particular organisation, however that Israel held “the Syrian regime accountable”.

Monday’s assault focused “observation posts and intelligence collection systems, anti-aircraft artillery facilities and command and control systems” in Syrian military bases in Qunaitra, the IDF stated.

“The IDF holds the Syrian government responsible for all activities on Syrian soil, and will continue operating with determination against any violation of Israeli sovereignty,” the assertion added.

Syria’s official information company Sana reported that the Syrian military had activated its air defences late on Monday in opposition to “hostile targets” close to the capital Damascus.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights stated that daybreak air raids on the town of Boukamal, close to the Iraqi border within the northeast, had killed 15 folks.

Tensions have been rising between rivals Israel and Syria, notably alongside Israel’s northern frontier, since an obvious Israeli air strike killed a Hezbollah fighter in Syria two weeks in the past.

Israel had anticipated that the Iranian-backed Lebanese group would retaliate.
