[Jpost] The targets hit in the strikes included lookout points, intelligence gathering mechanisms, anti-aircraft weapons and more.
The IDF carried out
s against targets belonging to the Syrian military in southern Syria on Monday night, in response to an attempted terrorist attack that was thwarted along the Syrian border the night before.
IDF aircraft, including fighter jets and helicopters, carried out the strikes, according to the IDF.
The targets hit in the strikes included lookout points, intelligence gathering mechanisms, anti-aircraft weapons and means of control and command at Syrian military bases.
That sounds fairly comprehensive..."The IDF sees the Syrian regime as responsible for all operations carried out in its territory and will continue to act with determination against all attacks on the illusory sovereignty of the State of Israel," the IDF said.
Syrian air defenses responded to "enemy targets" southwest of Damascus on Monday night, according to Syrian state news agency SANA.
According to the agency, only material damage was caused in strikes that targeted the Quneitra area in southern Syria. al-Arabiya reported that injuries were caused in the strikes.
Shortly before the strikes in Quneitra, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that airstrikes by unidentified aircraft had targeted sites on Monday morning belonging to pro-Iranian militias in Albukamal in the Deir Ezzor area of Syria near the Iraqi-Syrian border. Deaths and injuries were reported in the strikes, which damaged armories and other sites belonging to the militias.
IDF soldiers thwarted an attempt to place bombs near the Syrian border fence late Sunday night.
"Special forces that were carrying out an ambush near an IDF post in the southern Golan Heights spotted a cell with a number of hard boyz planting bombs along the border. An IDF force and an aircraft opened fire together on the four-member cell and hit them," the military said, adding that no soldiers were harmed in the incident.
"We don’t know who sent them," said IDF front man Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman on Monday. "There are a lot of players in Syria, some acting for Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for
spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet
militias to extend the regime's influence. The word
Iran is a cognate form of
Aryan. The abbreviation
IRGC is the same idea as
Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term
Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either
Führer or maybe both. They hate
Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
and some not. We cannot say right now that this is a Hezbollah attack, but we can’t rule it out either."
Later on Monday, the army said that during an investigation of the scene, some 25 meters from the perimeter fence inside Israeli territory, weapons and a bag containing a number of bombs were found.
The foiled attack took place near an abandoned military post in the southern Golan Heights on the Syrian border where the IDF had operated the Mazor Ladach field clinic, which was opened in August 2017 and closed a year later, Zilberman told news hounds.
