(Reuters) – Israel’s military claimed that its jets had struck Syrian army infrastructure, including mortar launchers and other weapons early on Wednesday morning in response to the rockets fired by Syria at Israel.

The military confirmed that two rockets launched from Syria had landed on open ground late Tuesday night. It said that artillery had been fired at the launchers.

In response to this, the military stated that its fighter jets had "struck Syrian Army mortar launchers and military infrastructure".

The military didn't provide any further details. The military did not blame the Syrian army for firing the two missiles that set off the air raid sirens on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights Tuesday.

Syria has not yet commented.

Israel has been fighting militants from Hamas and Hezbollah in Gaza Strip after a deadly attack on Israel. The conflict is a larger one over the northern border.
