Israel confirms it striked Syrian targets

Israeli aircraft struck dozens of Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria on Wednesday, the Israeli military said, in what it described as a retaliatory attack.

"In response to the rockets fired by an Iranian force from Syrian territory at Israel last night, IDF fighter jets struck dozens of military targets of the Iranian Quds Force and the Syrian Armed Forces, including surface-to-air missiles, headquarters, weapons warehouses and military bases," Reuters cited a statement from the military as saying.

According to the Israeli military, some 20 targets hit in the attack, more than half of them being Iranian, Haaretz reported.

After the strikes, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "I made it clear that whoever harms us - we will strike back. This is what we did tonight against military targets of Iran's Quds Force and Syrian military targets in Syria, after rockets were fired at Israel last night."
