Israel exchanged rocket and cruise missile fire with Iranian forces deployed inside Syria during an hours-long battle late Wednesday, the biggest direct confrontation between the two countries since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
Responding to a barrage of rockets reportedly fired by Iranian troops at Israeli positions in the Golan Heights, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) attacked nearly all of Irans military installations in Syria, an IDF spokesman said, according to the Associated Press.
Targets included a weapons storage facility, logistics sites and intelligence centers used by the Quds Force, the special operations division of Irans Revolutionary Guard Corps. Also destroyed were several Syrian air-defense systems, which activated against Israeli fighter jets.
None of the warplanes were hit, the IDF said.

And why would this be any of “The Wests” business?
I don’t believe that’s accurate. Operation Mole Cricket 19 was a far bigger deal than this current engagement.
Re supply cruise rockets? Money maker.
Israel is part of western civilization. In fact, without Israel there wouldn’t ever have been a western civilization.
The greeks and romans might argue with that
Iran is putting to use the money Obama/Kerry released to them.
I don’t know haw they could. Western civilization is the end product of 4,000 years of Juedeo-Christian, Greco-Roman, Anglo-American progress.
Yes...which is the true reason for the so-called “nuke deal”!
A lonely Jewish carpenter caused major changes to Greek and Roman culture.
Yeah, the West was sleeping...
Well Europe maybe, but my take is that Trump WAS IN THE LOOP.
Sleeping? What BS.
Who does the Daily Caller think controls the airspace?
We had our normal overwatch on, but didn’t deploy any extaordinary assets, the IDF had it covered.
I still want to know where 0bama got the pallets of cash. Why isn't this being investigated?
Probably just printed it, no worries about inflation given the Obama recession.
They'll try but the war is not popular back at home.
The Syrian war is costing Iran $10-$20 billion a year, the vast majority of Iranians live in poverty except for the mullahs and their families.
They've had 40 years of 'Death to America', 'Death to Israel' and no results and it's getting very, very old.
Uh, you left out the mooselimb factor. You know, paper, math, astromomy, space flight. It goes on and on and on......
Well, we know PDJT was up around 0200 EDT.
Can’t help but notice that scientific achievements in the Muslim world all petered out once the dying husk of the Hellenic world had breathed its last.
dont forget IED’s and truck bombs,
