Ya'alon Vows 'Harsh' Response to Attacks from Syria


Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said, Monday morning, that an Israeli airstrike in Syria Sunday night was in retaliation for an attack from the Syrian side of the Golan Heights Sunday morning that killed one Israeli and wounded his father, among others.

Ya'alon said, "We see the regime of (Syrian President) Bashar Assad and the Syrian army as responsible for what is done in the territory under its control, and we will continue to respond harshly and strongly to any provocation and attack on our sovereignty."
