The defense department says that the IDF attacked the south of Syria and the outskirts of its capital. The missiles were launched from the Golan Heights, which belong to the Syrian Arab Republic and are under Israeli occupation.

In Tel Aviv, they explain their actions by saying that they allegedly impede the supply weapons armed groups supported by Tehran.
