And it will be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:1
An IDF spokesperson declined to comment on the Syrian report of an initial Israeli attack near the Syrian capital, which reportedly killed one soldier and wounded five.
But the IDF said it carried out a counterstrike in Syria in response to the launching of the anti-aircraft missile. It said the missile triggered sirens in parts of Israel and Judea and Samaria, and exploded in mid-air.
At around 1:00 am, an explosion was reported over the so-called “Triangle” region in Israel around Wadi Ara towns, including Umm al-Fahm.
“Following the anti-aircraft missile launch earlier tonight, the Israel Defense Forces attacked surface-to-air missile batteries and radar that fired at Israeli Air Force planes,” the IDF said on Twitter.
Israel launched surface-to-surface missiles from the Golan Heights and Syrian air defenses shot down some of them, Syrian state TV said.
