The Israeli military said Sunday it struck two Syrian army posts with artillery fire after rockets from the war-torn country landed in Israeli-controlled territory.

The Israeli airforce can strike inside Syria at its own time of convenience.

The military said the two rockets, which landed over the last two days, were errant fire from the Syrian conflict. They caused no damage or injuries.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, said in a statement that Israel holds the Syrian military “responsible and accountable for any aggression emanating from Syria.”

Rami Abdurrahman, the head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said a Syrian army position in the Quneitra region of the Golan Heights was hit at least four times by the Israeli military. Activists have reported intense fighting between Syrian troops and insurgents in the Quneitra area in recent days.

My comment:

The Israeli government holds Basher al-Assad responsible for any hostility from Syria.  This is an important strategy. It makes the Russian supporters of the Syrian regime accountable.

If Putin wants to save Damascus from falling into the hands of  Islamic Jihad, the Russians needs to protect the borders of Israel too. Because if the Russians permits the Syrian civil war to spill over into the Golan, Damascus will come under fire from all sides.

There is another reason why the IDF must fire back. If Hezb”Allah is not punished for firing rockets into Israel, it will be seen in the Arab world as Jewish weakness. Such a failed strategy will eventually trigger more rocket attacks.

Psalm 120:7
I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.

Stand up for Israel’s right to defend her borders. That will be pleasing to the returning Messiah. Behold: Yeshua is the Messiah. We can expect no one else to return and rescue us.
