Israeli Air Force fighter jets attacked Syrian army positions near the city of Daara overnight Tuesday in response to rocket fire.
The Golan Regional Council said earlier that three projectiles had hit open areas, causing no injuries or damage.
Since Hamas’s Oct. 7 massacre, terrorists in southern Syria have intermittently fired rockets at the Jewish state, including earlier this month when five projectiles were launched.
In retaliation for those attacks, the IDF targeted “military infrastructure of the Syrian army.”
On Jan. 8, the military announced the elimination of Hassan Akasha, a senior Hamas operative responsible for the fire from Syria. He was killed in a strike in the southern Syrian town of Beit Jinn, west of Damascus.
Akasha “directed Hamas terrorist squads that fired rockets from Syria,” tweeted IDF Spokesperson Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari.
“We will not allow terrorism from Syrian territory, and it [Syria] is responsible for any action that leaves its territory. We will continue to act against any threat,” he added.
On Monday, several people were killed in an alleged Israeli attack on a site used by Tehran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on the outskirts of Damascus.
Syrian state media reported that “a number of Iranian advisers” had been killed.
Last week, Iran vowed to avenge the deaths of five IRGC officers in Syria, blaming Israel for a missile attack on a residential building in Damascus.
Israel has hit hundreds of terror targets in Syria in recent years as part of an effort to prevent Iranian military entrenchment in the country, though it rarely confirms these strikes.
