The Israeli Defense Minister told Iranian and Syrian forces on Wednesday that they are "no longer immune" to retaliation after Israel launched retaliatory strikes against them on Tuesday night.
The Israeli government claimed to have struck dozens of Syrian-based Iranian targets in retribution for what Israel said was an Iranian attack against Golan Heights, a region northeast of the Sea of Galilee. The rockets were all intercepted by the Iron Dome, Israel's missile defense system, the country reported.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 23 people, including 16 non-Syrians, were killed by the rocket fire.
"Whoever harms us, we will harm them," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement following the rocket strike.
