Israel launched strikes on Syrian military positions Saturday, close to the two countries' disputed border in the Golan Heights.
"In response to over 10 projectiles launched from Syria, IAF aircraft targeted origin of launches & 2 Syrian tanks", the IDF stated.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor which has been reporting on Syria's six-year war, said two Syrian soldiers were killed in the Israeli strikes.
"An official protest has been sent to the United Nations Peacekeeping Forces as the Israeli sovereignty was violated in an unacceptable way", the army said.
