Jerusalem: The Israeli army said it struck Syrian military targets on Monday.

The strike was carried out by aircraft, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed, according to reports.

It said the strike was carried out as part of retaliation for a bombing attempt. On late Sunday, the IDF also killed four men near the Israeli-occupied sector of Golan Heights, who were planting explosives.

Military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus said the country held "the Syrian regime accountable".

"The IDF holds the Syrian government responsible for all activities on Syrian soil, and will continue operating with determination against any violation of Israeli sovereignty," a statement from the Israeli army read.

Acknowledging the strike, Syria said there was material damage at military outposts near Damascus.
