The leader of the Hezbollah terrorist group says 55 rockets were fired from Syria at the Golan Heights last week.
Israel has said 20 rockets were fired late last Wednesday, four of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, while the rest fell short and landed in Syria. Jerusalem blamed Iranian forces in Syria for the barrage.
While stopping short of claiming the attack, Hassan Nasrallah says, “Fifty-five rockets, some of them of large caliber, were fired at the military occupation posts in the occupied Golan, forcing all the residents in occupied Golan and some of north Israel to scramble to bomb shelters in panic,” according to the Lebanese Naharnet outlet.
“The message behind the rockets that were fired at the Golan is that Israel can no longer bomb Syria without facing a response,” says Nasrallah.
