Syrian Rocket Strikes Israel’s Golan Heights, IDF Responds

The IDF responded to a stray Syrian missile that hit an open field in northern Israel.

Israel responded to a stray rocket from Syria that struck an open field in the Israeli Golan Heights Thursday. No injuries or property damage were reported.

“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm the sovereignty of the State of Israel and the security of its residents,’ the army said in a statement.

The IDF confirmed that the rocket was the result of a “stray” missile, rather than an intentional attack from regime or opposition forces taking part in the Syrian civil war.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that IDF units are scouring the area.

Earlier this week, Israeli warplanes bombed a Syrian anti-aircraft battery near Damascus in retaliation for a Syrian attack Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft.
