Iran and Israel traded blows on the Syrian border overnight, marking the first time Tehran has directly attacked Israel.
Last night, Iranian forces fired 20 rockets from Syria at Israeli front-line military positions in the Golan Heights, the Israeli military said.
UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Israeli strikes killed at least 23 military personnel, including Syrians and non-Syrians.
Israel said the Iranian rockets were either shot down by its Iron Dome air defence system or fell short of the Golan targets, claiming the Quds Force, an external arm of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, carried out the launch.
In retaliation, Israel launched dozens of missiles on Iranian positions in Syria, which hit a radar station, air defence positions and an ammunition dump, Syrian state media said.
The exchange of fire came less than a day after US President Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran atomic agreement, which lifts sanctions on Tehran in exchange for a halt on its nuclear program.

It makes no strategic sense for Iran to shoot missiles at Israel. They have a significant military advantage in air power. It makes sense for Israel to fake an attack so that it can strike at Iranian forces in Syria. Netanyahu most likely went to Moscow to get permission. As an oil producer Russia gains a lot with an increase in the price of oil.
