An IDF airstrike hits Syrian military targets

On Monday, Israel's military said it attacked a Syrian anti-aircraft position that had fired on one of its warplanes, and Syrian state media said a soldier had been killed in the incident. The military said there was no damage or injuries.

The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) reported on Twitter on Saturday evening that two projectiles were fired from the Syrian territory in the direction of Mount Hermon in Northern Syria.

A military spokeswoman said that the details were still being looked into and that it remained unclear who had fired the rockets and where they had landed.

In March, US President Donald Trump recognized Israel's sovereignty over the disputed plateau, and last month Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his government would name a town there after the American leader in honor of his decision.

"We won't tolerate fire at our territory", he said.

Mega Millions numbers: Did you win Tuesday’s $444 million lottery jackpot?
Today, state-sponsored lotteries contribute millions state budgets, but some critics question how effective they actually are. Jackpot winners choose whether to receive 30 annual payments, each five percent higher than the last, or a lump-sum payment.

Saturday night's rockets appeared to be a relatively long range variety, reportedly fired from the Damascus area, some 35 kilometers (22 miles) away, similar to an attack earlier this year aimed at the Hermon.

In January, Iranian troops in Syria fired a medium-range, Iranian-made missile at Mount Hermon in what the IDF said at the time was a "premeditated" attack aimed at deterring Israel from conducting airstrikes against the Islamic republic's troops and proxies in Syria. According to the report, Syrian air defense systems successfully intercepted a number of "missiles".

Israeli officials have repeatedly voiced concerns over Iran's presence in Syria and the smuggling of sophisticated weaponry to Hezbollah from Tehran to Lebanon via Syria, stressing that both are redlines for the Jewish state.

In recent years, Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria against its regional arch foe Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah group, which it calls the biggest threat to its borders.
