The Israeli Defence Forces have uploaded a video of a retaliatory missile strike against Syria on their official Twitter account.

The IDF struck several Syrian Armed Forces targets that included two artillery batteries, observation and intelligence posts, as well as a SA-2 aerial defense battery. Three Syrian military personnel died as a result of the strike, while seven were wounded.

​The Israel Defence Forces have repeatedly hit targets in Syria, with the latest strikes prior to this taking place last week.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has justified these actions by the necessity to prevent Iran’s apparent attempts to ‘gain a foothold’ in Syria.

Israel fought off the Golan Heights from Syria during the Six-Day War of 1967, and annexed them in 1981. The status of the mountain plateau is considered one of the main sticking points of the Israeli-Syrian conflict.

It’s the same shït EVERY YEAR DURING RAMADAN. There are always some idiots who can’t help shelling into Israel, then, well, IDF practises ZERO TOLERANCE, and they don’t randomly shoot : when they shoot, they hit…
When will they learn? 3 just died because some idiot wanted some fireworks for Ramadan.
Assad should take serious disciplinary measures.
