IDF STRIKES SYRIAN TARGETS IN RESPONSE TO GOLAN CROSSFIRE
The IDF says spillover from the Syrian civil war is treated with the utmost severity, after several projectile land on Golan.
Israel will not tolerate any violation of its security on any front, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday shortly after the IDF retaliated against Syria for the firing of 10 projectiles onto the Golan Heights.
“With the IDF action today, we are making our policy clear again,” Netanyahu said. “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.”
According to Arab media sources, the IDF attack reportedly left two Syrian Army soldiers dead after Israeli Air Force jets struck tanks belonging to the regime of President Bashar Assad. It also hit another position from which one of the projectiles was fired on the Golan.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman also issued a statement saying Israel would not tolerate any breach of its sovereignty and would react forcefully even if the firing on Israel is the result of “spillover” from fighting between the rebels and the Syrian regime.-more
