Israel Military sais in a statement that it took out compound used as base for attack on its troops Sunday by members of Khalid ibn al-Walid Army in Golan Heights in Syria.
The raid came after an Israeli air strike killed four members of an Islamic State-affiliated terrorist group in southern Syria on Sunday morning, following a clash near the border. No Israeli soldiers were injured in the exchange, the army said.
The military said that the additional airstrike Monday was also in response to the attack on Israeli forces on Sunday when, while conducting an “ambush operation,” according an Israel Forces spokesperson, soldiers from the Golani Brigade’s reconnaissance unit had come under attack from small arms fire after crossing the security fence with Syria while remaining inside Israeli territory. They returned fire, but soon came under attack from mortar shells.
The army said Monday that the target in the overnight air strike was an “abandoned UN building that has been used by the Islamic State as an operations centre along the border in the southern Syrian Golan Heights,” adding that “the compound was the base for yesterday’s attack against Isareli forces.”
“This is an additional response to yesterday’s attack, and it is aimed at preventing the terrorists from returning to the installation which poses a significant threat,” the statement said.
Israel “will not hesitate to act against terror groups that operate against the State of Israel,” the statement added.
