The IDF early Friday morning struck the organization in Syria that carried out the launch of a UAV toward Eilat on Thursday, which hit a school in the city.
"The IDF holds the Syrian regime fully responsible for every terror activity emanating from its territory. The IDF will respond severely to every aggression against Israeli territory," the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said in a statement.
An explosion was heard on Thursday afternoon in the yard of the Tse’elim School in Eilat. The IDF confirmed that the explosion was a result of a drone that hit a building.
The explosion damaged the school building, but the 37 students who were in the building at the time were not injured.
One man was evacuated for treatment after suffering from smoke inhalation and several other people were treated for anxiety.
On Thursday evening, IDF fighter jets struck Hezbollah terror infrastructure in Lebanon, in response to the launches toward Israeli territory over the past day.
Additionally, the IDF struck terror targets using artillery and the "Iron Sting" guided mortar munition.
Among the targets were terror compounds and infrastructure, observation posts, and technological equipment used to direct terror against Israel.
