The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) shared a video on Twitter on Sunday that appears to show the Israeli Iron Dome missile defense system intercepting an incoming rocket over the heads of skiers at the Mount Hermon ski resort in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
The latest round of attacks between Israel and Iran began with a series of Israeli airstrikes Sunday on Iranian targets in Syria, attacks that have become nearly routine.
"The IDF (Israel Defence Force) is the only military that is fighting the Iranian army in Syria", he said during a visit to an Israeli army base. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least seven other fighters, likely from Iranian militias, were also killed.
The strikes have caused friction between Israel and Russian Federation, which along with Iran has provided President Bashar al-Assad with crucial military support throughout the Syrian conflict, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced millions. Both the attack in the video and the subsequent Israeli response came with a slew of statements in the media issued by both Syrian and Israeli officials claiming to have fended off rocket and missile attacks using their respective missile defense systems.
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will not allow Iran to establish a foothold in Syria. An IDF spokesperson stated that the Israeli Air Force had targeted "military facilities of Iran's Quds Force" deployed in the Arab Republic.

"We have started striking Iranian Quds targets in Syrian territory", a military statement said.
Conricus also said the missile was sacked from a location near Damascus in "an area that we have been promised that the Iranians would not be in" - a promise presumably made by Russian Federation although Conricus refused to confirm this. Recently-retired IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot acknowledged earlier this month that over the past several years, Israel had dropped thousands of bombs on Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria.
"There are 15 foreigners among the dead, including 12 from the Iranian forces", he said.
"We're ready for the decisive war that will bring about Israel's disappearance". Iran's Qud Forces are elite units within Iran's Revolutionary Guard tasked with unconventional warfare and intelligence-gathering operations, not entirely unlike special operations troops employed by many nations around the world.
