The military announces it carried out strikes in Syria in response to a drone attack on a school in Israel’s southernmost city of Eilat.

A statement from the Israel Defense Forces says it targeted the organization that launched the drone, without specifying who was behind the attack, where it originated or what the IDF hit.

“The Syrian regime is fully responsible for all terror activity that is carried out from Syrian territory. The IDF will respond severely to any attempt to harm the territory of the State of Israel,” says the statement.
