Israel Attacks Syria in Retaliation for Drone Incursion


On Wednesday night, the IDF attacked three military posts in Syria.

The attack was carried out in response to the crossing of an unmanned Syrian aircraft that the IDF intercepted earlier in the day.

The IDF Spokesman Unit statement read, “The IDF will continue to act decisively and resolutely against attempts to violate the sovereignty of the State of Israel and act against any attempt to harm its citizens, and the Syrian regime is responsible for what is happening in its territory and warns it against acting against our forces.

“The IDF is highly prepared for a variety of scenarios and will continue to act as necessary for the safety of the citizens of the State of Israel.”

An unmanned aircraft crossed the border into northern Israel from Syria on Wednesday afternoon, leading to the firing of a Patriot Missile over Tiveria. The drone aircraft reportedly traveled about 10 kilometers (6 miles) into Israel before the decision was made to intercept it.
