Israeli jets attack Syrian government positions in Golan Heights
Israel says that it has targeted Syrian military positions after mortar fire landed in an open area in the occupied Golan Heights.
On Sunday, Tel Aviv released a statement claiming that it had struck Syrian "cannons" during an airstrike in Syria’s Golan Heights after "mortar fire" hit an unpopulated area.
Following the incident, Israeli military spokesman Peter Lerner tweeted that the Syrian government must be held accountable for the shelling.
Tel Aviv has targeted the region several times in recent years.
On August 22, Israeli jets carried out an airstrike in the area, again claiming that the attack was in retaliation for stray fire from Syrian fighting factions that landed inside Israel.
