The Syrian army's air defense system kicked into action on Monday evening against raids in the south of the country claimed by Israel, the official Syrian news agency Sana reported.

<q data-attributes = "{" lang ": {" value ":" fr "," label ":" Français "}," value ": {" html ":" At 22h40 today (14h40 EST), enemy Israeli helicopters launched rocket bursts at some of our positions (…) towards Qouneitra "," text ":" At 10:40 pm today (2:40 pm EST), helicopters from the The Israeli enemy launched rocket bursts at some of our positions (…) towards Qouneitra "}}" lang = "en”>At 10:40 p.m. today (2:40 p.m. EDT), enemy Israeli helicopters launched rocket bursts at some of our positions … towards Qouneitra., Sana said, citing a military source, who only reported damage.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (OSDH) also reported Israeli raids on the province of Qouneitra, without being able to specify whether the strikes killed Syrian soldiers or allied fighters.

The town of Boukamal, in the northeast of the country near the Iraqi border, has also been targeted by Israeli missiles, OSDH director Rami Abdel Rahmane told AFP.

The day before, unidentified planes in the city killed 15 pro-Iranian fighters, most of them Iraqis, according to OSDH.

Rarely, Israel claimed responsibility for the strikes on Qouneitra on Monday evening, in retaliation for attempts to place homemade bombs along its disputed border with Syria.

In response (to this attempt), combat jets, attack helicopters and planes of the Israeli armed forces struck military targets in southern Syria that belong to the Syrian armed forces., the Israeli army said in a statement.

Targets struck include observation posts and intelligence collection systems, anti-aircraft installations and control systems at Syrian armed forces bases, sued the IDF in this rare admission of airstrikes in Syria.

The Israeli armed forces hold the Syrian government accountable for all activities on Syrian soil and will continue to act decisively against all violations of Israeli sovereignty, continued the army without further details on these airstrikes.

Since the start of the conflict in Syria in 2011, Israel has carried out numerous raids against regime forces, but also against its allies, Iran and Lebanese Hezbollah, enemies of the Hebrew state.

The Jewish state, which rarely confirms its operations in Syria, repeatedly repeats that it will not let Syria become Tehran's beachhead.

Strikes blamed on Israel or claimed by the Israeli army regularly target positions in Syria where Iranian forces or Hezbollah fighters are stationed, and sometimes kill people.

A series of strikes

On July 20, five pro-Iran fighters, including a member of Lebanese Hezbollah, were killed in Israeli strikes south of Damascus, according to OSDH, which also reported 11 wounded, including 7 Syrian soldiers.

On Sunday evening, the Israeli army killed four terrorists which she said were laying explosives near a security fence along the part of the Syrian Golan occupied by Israel.

These unidentified men were in Israeli territory, but beyond the fence, and were attacked by an Israeli unit, under the cover of snipers and air raids, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said.

Israeli military officials recently spoke of a second front Hezbollah, a Lebanese Shiite movement allied with Tehran, in the Syrian Golan.

The Israeli army had also deployed in July new reinforcements along its northern border, at the crossroads of Lebanon and Syria, claiming to have increased their readiness against various potential enemy actions.

On Monday, a rare outbreak of fever occurred on the border with Lebanon, the IDF claiming to have foiled an attempt to infiltrate a terrorist cell in reference to Hezbollah, which has denied any involvement in the clashes announced by Israel.

We will hit whoever attacks us, launched Monday the Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Triggered by the repression of pro-democracy demonstrations, the conflict in Syria has become more complex with the intervention of several foreign actors. It killed more than 380,000 people.
