IDF Releases Video of Aerial Assault on Syrian Forces

Israel on Saturday responded harshly to errant Syrian army fire that hit the Israeli side of the Golan Heights.
The above footage shows Israeli military aircraft targeting a number of Syrian positions, including at least two tanks.
Syrian sources said that two people were killed in the strikes.
It appears that Islamist rebels in the area took advantage of the Israeli strikes to launch their own attack on the Syrian military. Damascus accused Israel of colluding with the jihadists.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the retaliation sent a clear message: "We are not willing to accept any spillover or leakage of fire from any front. We will respond with force to any fire on our territory."
