The strike by the Israeli Air Force on Syrian territory is contrary to the principles of international law and leads to an unnecessary escalation of tensions. The Russian Foreign Ministry considers these steps to be incorrect, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said.

“We are, of course, in contact with all our partners, finding out the circumstances. Striking the territory of a sovereign state is completely contrary to the principles of international law and leads to an escalation of tensions, which no one needs,” Bogdanov said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has taken to Twitter to comment on the IDF strike against “dozens of military targets” allegedly belonging to Iran’s Quds Force, an elite unit in the Revolutionary Guards Corps, and the Syrian Army.

“I made it clear that whoever is hurting us – will be hurt. This is what we did tonight against military targets of Iranian Quds force and Syrian military targets in Syria after last night’s rocket launches were launched at Israel. We will continue to maintain Israel’s security firmly,” Netanyahu tweeted.

His comment follows an early Wednesday statement issued by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), announcing that Israeli jets had pounded Syrian territory, attacking dozens of military targets allegedly belonging to Iranian and Syrian forces. Neither Damascus, nor Tehran have commented on the strikes so far.

According to the IDF, the targets included air-to-air missiles, warehouses, and various military facilities.

​The Israeli military said in the statement the air raid came in response to earlier rocket launches allegedly carried out by Syrian forces from Syrian territory that targeted Israeli territory.

The IDF blamed the “Syrian regime” for the attacks, vowing to continue “operating firmly and for as long as necessary against the Iranian entrenchment in Syria.”

Syrian govt was warned there’d be strikes on IRGC and Hellbollah and they should not interfere, SyADF shot missiles towards Israeli aircraft, IDF aircraft thus destroyed air defense sites.
As long as Syrian militaries don’t shoot at IDF first, they’re NEVER targetted.

Israel ataca cobardemente cuando Siria se encuentra en conflicto interno, con estos echos o actos demuestra que Israel apoya a los terroristas en Siria.
