TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Dozens of rockets were fired from Syria at the occupied Golan Heights on Thursday in response to the Israeli regime’s continued aggression against the Arab country, reports said.
According to the reports, dozens of missiles were launched at Israeli targets in the Golan Heights in response to an earlier attack by the Tel Aviv regime against Quneitra province.
The Israeli army claimed that some of the missiles fired from Syria had been intercepted and that the level of damage was "low."
Earlier, Syrian media said that Israeli troops had shelled the city of Ba’ath in the southern province of Quneitra.
On Tuesday, Israeli missiles targeted Syrian army positions in the Kisweh area south of the capital city Damascus.
On the same day, Israel instructed local authorities to “unlock and ready (bomb) shelters” in the occupied Golan Heights as US President Donald Trump announced Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) departure.
Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and has continued to occupy two-thirds of the strategically-important territory ever since, in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.
The regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area since its occupation and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.
