IDF Retaliates for Syrian Fire


The IDF shot back at a Syrian military target over Shabbos after errant shells from Syria exploded in the Golan Heights, say media reports.

Israel’s Tammuz missile hit an army post, according to a military spokesman, adding that they decided to return fire only after a series of incidents earlier in the day, and after the IDF complained to the U.N. peacekeeping force on the Syria-Israel border.

This is the eighth time the Israel Defense Forces have fired a Tammuz missile in response to errant Syrian shells and cross-border fire in the ongoing conflict.

IDF forces were continuing to sweep the Golan after Shabbos, but believe at least three shells exploded.
