Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman sent another warning to Syria, that sporadic cross-border fire will not be tolerated. Sirens sounded in the Golan Heights on Tuesday, 28 Cheshvan, but the IDF Spokesman reported there was not trace of a launch or landing, signaling the sirens were a possible malfunction.
Earlier in the week terrorists fired into the Golan Heights and Israel retaliated, killing four terrorists in Syria. The air force also retaliated and dropped ten one-ton bombs on a vacant ISIS facility.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu also commented during a meeting of the Likud faction, explaining over recent days there have been several attempts to attack soldiers along the border. He promised such actions would be met with a “swift and forceful response” from Israel.
In his comments to a Yisrael Beitenu party faction meeting, Defense Minister Lieberman explained Israel would not tolerate provocations from any border, north our south. He added the IDF does not have to coordinate its operations with Russia, whose air force is playing a role in the ongoing civil war in Syria. He explained there is no need to coordinate with anyone and Israel would respond if and when required to do so.
