Military says it carried out the strikes after Tehran fired missiles towards its forces in the occupied Golan Heights.
Israeli army said on Thursday it hit dozens of Iranian military targets in Syria overnight accusing Tehran of launching rocket and missile attack towards its forces in the occupied Golan Heights.
“The (Israeli military) has struck dozens of Iranian military targets in Syria,” Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists.
He said they targeted intelligence, logistics, storage and vehicles as well as the origin of the rockets. It was one of the largest Israeli military operations in recent years and the biggest against Iranian targets.
In February, an Israeli F-16 fighter jet was shot down by the Syrian military while targeting what it called Iranian sites responsible for launching a drone into the occupied Golan Heights.
