The IDF retaliated by firing a Tamuz missile that destroyed the post from which the shots were fired.

The IDF estimated that due to a recurring pattern of gunfire from the same Syrian area, directed at the same Israeli target and executed at roughly the same time at night, the gunfire was not the result of unintentional overspill and decided therefore to fire back.
The unit that was subjected to the gunfire was backed by numerous military forces, including aircraft, that helped with detecting the source responsible for the hits.
This is the third day in a row in which gunfire from Syria hits Israeli targets.
