Israel reportedly struck Iranian-Hizballah concentrations near Damascus overnight after two rockets from Syria were aimed at IDF Mt. Hermon positions overlooking the Golan Saturday night, June 1. No injuries were caused by the Syrian rockets.
Since there is no current fighting in the area of the Syrian launching site – some 35km east of Mt. Hermon – the attack was believed deliberately aimed at an Israeli military target rather than errant fire. This followed another incident in the past week, when Syrian anti-air artillery fire targeted an Israel fighter jet which was on a routine patrol over northern Israel. Israel retaliated by striking the launch site. Syria reported one soldier killed and a second injured.
