Israel's military strikes in Syria
Tehran (KNA) - Israel conducted raids in Syria, where they believe the drone was launched.
According to Syrian state TV, which quoted a military official, Syrian air defenses struck more than one Israeli plan, and called the Israeli raids that hit a base a “new Israeli aggression.”
Although Israel has shot down several drones from Syria that have infiltrated the country’s territory in the past, the attack on an Iranian site in response to Saturday’s incident signals an escalation in the Israeli retaliation.
The military confirmed the Syrian target of the drone’s launch components were destroyed.
Israel's chief military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said Israel held Iran directly responsible for the incident.
"This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory. Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn't know how it will end," he said in a special statement.
