Israel targets Syrian artillery positions after errant rockets land in Golan Heights

The Syrian military said it came under attack in Quneitra province.

Israel occupied parts of the Golan Heights in the 1967 regional war and now considers the territory its own, though Syria continues to oppose the Israeli presence.

The Israeli military targeted three artillery cannon inside Syrian territory on Saturday, saying that it was in response to five projectiles landing on Israeli-held territory in the Golan Heights.

Syrian news agency SANA quoted the statement from the Syrian army, which went on to add that "the Israeli enemy attacked this morning one of our posts and caused damages".

During Syria's more than six-year-old conflict, Israel has returned fire across the border, including stray shells from fighting among Syrian combatants.

"Whether errant fire or not, any future occurrences will force the IDF to intensify its response", the IDF Spokesperson's Unit stated on its official Twitter page.

Israeli air force strike Syrian military positions on Saturday in retaliation for stray shells launched by rebels.

Israel fought a devastating 2006 war with Hezbollah and has voiced concern that the group's involvement in Syria risks opening up a new front.

The Syrian command warned against "dangerous repercussions of such hostile acts, affirming that the Israeli occupation bears full responsibility for the outcomes of that aggression, regardless of the flimsy pretexts which have become divulged and well-known for all".

Iran's military chief was in Syria this week and cautioned Israel about attacking Assad regime assets.

The army said militants in nearby territory fired mortar rounds into the Golan Heights.
