The army fired artillery at 14 targets in Syria on Thursday evening, hours after four rockets were fired from that country deep into northern Israel.
The IDF said Syria would suffer the consequences of rocket strikes on Israel’s civilians.
Two of the enemy rockets struck open areas on the Golan Heights and two others hit the Upper Galilee far from the border with Syria. They were fired at Israel from the center of the Syrian-held portion of the Golan Heights, the IDF said.
The IDF Spokesman’s Office said, “We see Syria as responsible and they will suffer the consequences.”
Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, mortar shells and rockets have struck Israel on a semi-regular basis, but always very close to the border, prompting security officials to consider them “spillover” from the war and not fire directed intentionally at Israel.
The rockets triggered warning sirens across the North, sending Israelis running for cover – including thousands of vacationers taking a summer break.
