by The Daily Lede

In response to a cross-border attack that left one teenager dead, Israel has carried out airstrikes on 9 Syrian targets, including a military headquarters.

Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, of the Israeli military, said: “The attack was an unprovoked act of aggression against Israel, and a direct continuation to recent attacks that occurred in the area.”  He added that Israel would not tolerate any attempt to breach Israel’s sovereignty and will act in order to safeguard the civilians of the state of Israel.

There was no immediate response from Syria.
