Israel strikes targets for Syrian Army near occupied Golan Heights
Israeli aircraft have struck Syrian army targets after rockets were fired at the occupied Golan Heights, the Israeli military says.
Three Syrian soldiers were killed in the overnight strike, Syrian state media said on Sunday.
Israel seized the Golan from Syria in 1967 and later in effect annexed it, in a move not recognised internationally.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said Israel “would not tolerate” any firing into its territory.
