Israel responded to the Iranian attack on the Golan Heights with over 50 strikes

Israel National News:
The IDF attacked dozens of military targets belonging to the Iranian Qods Force in Syrian territory overnight Wednesday, said the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

As part of the large-scale attack, the following targets were hit:

• Iranian intelligence sites operated by the Qods Force.

• Logistics headquarters of the Qods Force.

• A military compound and logistics complex of the Qods Force in Kiswah.

• An Iranian military camp north of Damascus.

• Weapons storage sites belonging to the Qods Force at Damascus International Airport.

• Intelligence systems and installations associated with the Qods Force.

• Observation, military posts and weapons in the buffer zone.

In addition, the Iranian launcher from which missiles were fired at Israel was destroyed.

The Israel Air Force attacked Syrian air defense batteries, which fired despite an Israeli warning not to do so. In response, the IDF attacked a number of interception systems (SA5 SA2 SA22 SA17) belonging to the Syrian army.

All Israeli aircraft returned to their bases safely.

According to the Jerusalem Post:

According to IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis the Israeli retaliation was "one of the greatest operations of the Israel Air Force in the past decade."

During the operation by the Israel Air Force the jets were met with heavy anti-aircraft fire belonging to the Syrian regime and in return five air defense batteries were destroyed by Israel.

“The Iranian attack on Israel tonight is yet another clear proof of the intention behind the Iranian forces' entrenchment in Syria and the danger they pose to Israel and regional stability,” the IDF stated, adding that “the IDF will continue to act decisively against Iran’s entrenchment in Syria.”

The military stated that even though Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani is directly behind the attack, the Syrian regime is responsible for what happens in its territory and warned it against acting against the IDF.

"Tonight reflects what we are preparing for the future. The Quds Force chose to act against the State of Israel in the wrong place. We won't accept an Iranian entrenchment in Syria and the Quds Force has paid a very heavy price,” Manelis said.

“The IDF is highly prepared for a variety of scenarios and will continue to act as necessary for the safety of Israeli citizens,” the army said, stressing nonetheless that residents in Israel should continue their routine and that schools and farming can function as usual.
...
It was a big response to a failed attack, but it should be clear that Iran's war against Israel will be a costly one for the Islamic Republic and that it is also in Syria's interest to stop attacks by Iran.  Iran's air force is no match for that of the Isrealis and its bases in Syria are clearly vulnerable.
