Following the thwarting of a bomb attack in the southern Golan Heights tonight, the IDF attacked a number of targets in the Syrian Golan Heights area.
An IDF spokesman said: “Recently, fighter jets, fighter helicopters and IDF aircraft attacked Syrian army targets in southern Syria in response to the cargo landing incident, which was thwarted last night in the southern Golan Heights.”
The targets attacked include observation posts and means of gathering intelligence, anti-aircraft guns and means of command and control at Syrian army bases.
“The IDF considers the Syrian regime responsible for any action taken in its territory, and will continue to act resolutely against any violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” the statement said.
Earlier today, IDF forces patrolled the area where the explosive device was placed. Weapons and a bag containing several explosive devices that were ready to be used against the IDF force were found on the tour, 25 meters from the perimeter fence in Israeli territory.

The IDF spokesman said that “IDF forces carrying out operational employment in the Golan Heights sector continue to be vigilant and ready for the various developments.”
At the same time, in the afternoon, the commander of the Bashan formation, Brigadier General Roman Goffman, and the head of the Foreign Relations Division, Brigadier General Efi Dafrin, met with the commander of the UNDOF, General Ishvar Hamel, at the scene of the bombing. At the meeting, the division commander emphasized that the IDF would not allow the security of the residents of the State of Israel and its sovereignty to be harmed, and that the IDF considers the Syrian state responsible for everything that happens on its territory.
Last night, it was reported that four Hezbollah terrorists were killed by IDF fighters in an attempt to place explosives on the Syrian border in the southern Golan Heights.
The details indicate that a special force that carried out an ambush in the southern Golan Heights area, near a military post, identified a squad of several terrorists placing explosives near the border fence. An IDF force from the Magellan unit and an Air Force aircraft fired in parallel at the squad that numbered four terrorists, hitting them – and eliminating them, there were no casualties to our forces.
