The Israeli army said on Thursday it hit dozens of Iranian military targets in Syria overnight, accusing Tehran of launching rocket and missile attack towards its forces in the occupied Golan Heights.

Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists: “The (Israeli military) has struck dozens of Iranian military targets in Syria.”

He said they targeted intelligence, logistics, storage, and vehicles as well as the origin of the rockets.

Israel has carried out more than a dozen strikes in Syria in the past year.

The two countries are still technically at war, although the border had remained largely quiet for decades until 2011 when the Syrian conflict broke out.

This was one of the largest Israeli military operations in recent years and the biggest against Iranian targets.

  1. It’s always so easy for countries and their populations to slide into war even when conditions are only marginally biased in favour of such a fateful enterprise.
    Getting out of wars once locked into them and after full-scale combat has been engaged is very much harder.

    But, in this modern age, the one in which we all now live, shouldn’t humanity have achieved a level of sophistication more than sufficient to shut down these ruinous and hugely expensive conflicts, all of them best avoided because of the lives destroyed, destruction caused and resources wasted?

    if wars are so easy to initiate, then why shouldn’t it be just as easy to make them go away and never return?
