IDF: Hezbullah behind rockets launched from Syria
The IDF is confirming that Hezbullah is behind
two rockets that were launched
from the Golan Heights onto Israel earlier on Tuesday. This is from the first link.
A senior IDF source remarked on the two rockets fired from Syria that hit the Golan Heights Tuesday afternoon, saying the IDF response strike took out the rocket launcher.
The rockets were fired from territory under the control of Syrian
President Bashar al-Assad according to the source, who added that those
who actively launched the rockets were members of the Iran-proxy
Hezbollah terrorist organization, which has been fighting for Assad.
In the attack on Tuesday, two rockets hit two separate regions on the
Golan Heights, one in the Hermon region and the other in El Rom.
Mount Hermon, which is a skiing site, was evacuated on IDF orders
following the attack - it is to reopen on Wednesday. The IDF responded
with tank and cannon fire at the sources of the rocket strike in Syrian
I'm kind of disappointed they didn't hit Hezbullah assets in Lebanon as well. Next time....
