"The IDF attacked targets in Syrian territory," Mr. Netanuyahu said, The Times of Israel reported. "These were targets of Syrian elements that not only facilitated, but also cooperated with, the attacks on our forces. Our policy is very clear: We attack those who attack us. We are also, to the best of our ability, interdicting the transfer of weapons by sea, air and land, and this activity will continue."
"From time to time, we must take vigorous action, as we are now doing, so that this quiet may continue," he said, during his weekly cabinet meeting reported by The Times of Israel.
