Iranian forces were responsible for firing several rockets this week from Syria into northern Israel, according to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander station in the area planned the attack and helped Palestinian terror forces carry it out, IDF sources were quoted as telling the Times of Israel.
"According to a senior Israeli security official, Saeed Izadi, the head of the Palestinian Division of the Iranian al-Quds Force planned the attack," the outlet reported. "It was carried out by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a terror group that operates mostly out of the Gaza Strip, but whose headquarters are in Damascus."
At least four rockets struck areas in northern Israel on Thursday, prompting retaliation by Israeli forces.
"Israel held the Syrian government responsible for the attacks, retaliating with its largest assault on Syrian territory in decades," ToI reported. "The IDF fired artillery shells and launched airstrikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces, hitting 14 military posts in the Syrian Golan Heights, the defense official said."
