Israel Attacks 50 Iranian Targets in Syria after Iran Targets Israeli Bases

(Ynet News) Yoav Zitun - After Iranian forces in Syria launched a rocket attack on Israeli army bases in the Golan Heights early Thursday, the IDF attacked more than 50 Iranian targets in Syria in "one of the greatest operations of the Israel Air Force in the past decade," IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis said. "It will take the Iranians a long time to rehabilitate." "Under Iranian command...20 rockets were fired by Hizbullah experts and Shiite militias with Iranian weapons, and none of them hit Israeli territory. Four of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome and the rest landed on Syrian territory....There were no injuries and not a single post sustained damage....We also struck five batteries of the Syrian antiaircraft system, which fired dozens of missiles at our planes." "If the Syrians allow direct activity against Israel they will pay a price. It will take the Iranians a long time to rebuild the operational, military and intelligence infrastructure we hit tonight. We informed the Russians about this activity in advance."
