(WASHINGTON POST) JERUSALEM — Israeli warplanes and rockets struck nine targets in Syria early Monday in retaliation for a missile attack from Syria on Sunday that killed an Israeli teenager and wounded his father along the border in the Golan Heights.
A spokesman for the Israeli Defense Forces said Monday that Israel fired guided missiles from the ground and rockets from the air that hit sites in Syria, including a military command headquarters.

The Israelis would not say where in Syria the targets were. Over the past three years, Israel has attacked weapon transfers in Syria that it says were intended for the Lebanon-based Shiite military wing of Hezbollah. Israel also has fired at Syrian army targets after cross-border fire originated in Syria.
