Israeli forces bombed and killed four unknown terrorists as they were planting improvised explosive devices along the Israel-Syria border on Sunday night.

The IDF’s deadly response against the attackers occurred exactly where it had operated a field hospital for injured Syrian civilians until two years ago.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Office said: “IDF troops on the southern Golan Heights, adjacent to an IDF post, spotted a terror squad placing explosive devices (IEDs) adjacent to the security fence.

“IDF troops and an IDF aircraft fired simultaneously towards the squad of four terrorists, a hit was identified. No IDF injuries were reported.

“The Northern Command maintains elevated readiness for various scenarios. The IDF holds the Syrian regime responsible for all events on Syrian soil and will not tolerate any violation of Israeli sovereignty.”

Last month, an airstrike in Syria, attributed to Israel, killed a senior Hezbollah militant and ever since Israeli forces have been on high alert for retaliatory action.

In a separate incident on Sunday night, a rocket was fired from the Gaza strip towards Israel and was intercepted over the Israeli town of Sderot by the Iron Dome missile defence system, causing damage by falling shrapnel.

In response, Israeli jets bombed a concrete manufacturing site in the Gaza Strip which the IDF said was used to build underground tunnels.
