The IDF shelled a military position in Syria on Wednesday night after a rocket struck the Golan Heights. The shell fell in an open area causing no casualties or property damage. The army said the missile as a result of errant fire from the civil war in Syria. The missile strike and IDF response was the third since June 24.
“I said that we will not tolerate spillover and that we will respond to every incident,” said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during a ceremony celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of Katzrin, the largest city in the Golan. Netanyahu added that the incident occurred during his speech, adding that the IDF responded a short time later. “Whoever attacks us – we will attack him. This is our policy and we will continue with it,” Netanyahu said.
