Things are getting heated in the Middle East.

America’s strongest ally in the region took decisive action overnight when it bombed Syrian forces in the Quenteira Province. Apparently, rockets from the region made their way into Israel’s Golan Heights settlement, so the small Jewish country immediately retaliated to let Bashar al-Assad know that such incidents aren’t going to be tolerated.

From the Jerusalem Post:

The IDF struck sources in Syria from where errant fire emanated and hit open areas on the northern Golan Heights on Friday afternoon, the military confirmed.

Two rockets landed in open territory on the Golan Heights Friday afternoon. No damage or injuries were reported.

According to initial estimates, the projectiles were thought to have been errant fire from fighting in the civil war across the border in Syria.

The rocket alert siren was activated in several settlements on the Golan Heights.

The incident came after the army reported that a mortar fell on the northern Golan Heights on Friday afternoon.

As the bombings played out, the IDF was busy on its Twitter fed updating Israelis about the situation.

Unfortunately, Syria saw the move as an act of aggression, and used it as evidence that Israel is supporting the rebels trying to overthrow Assad, whom they call “terrorists.”

From Israel International News:

Syria claimed on Friday Israel’s retaliation for the explosion of mortar shells in the Golan Heights was proof that Israel provides assistance to rebels trying to topple Bashar Al-Assad’s regime.

In a statement quoted by the official Syrian news agency SANA, a Syrian military source confirmed that Israel struck a military position in the Quneitra region.

The strike caused “material damage”, according to the statement.

The source said that the Israeli “aggression” came after an attempt by “terrorists” to infiltrate military positions in Quneitra was foiled. This, claimed the source, proves that Israel provides direct support to “terrorist organizations”.

According to Haaretz, James Mattis was hosted in Israel by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the day his nation carried out strikes in Syria, which draws parallels to when President Trump hosted the Chinese president as he bombed the same nation. Although it’s unknown if there’s any relation to the two incidents.
