Several Syrian soldiers were reportedly killed in the airstrikes.
IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said Sunday's deadly attack on a car in the Golan Heights, which killed Mohammed Karkara and injured three others, was "an unprovoked act of aggression against Israel, and a direct continuation to recent attacks that occurred in the area." — Source
