JERUSALEM, Israel – The United States said Israel has a right to defend itself after Iran launched rocket attacks against Israel overnight and Israel struck back.
Shortly after midnight, the Iranian Quds Force based in Syria launched 20 rockets at Israel’s Golan Heights. But Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the attack had failed.
“The Iranians tried to attack Israel’s sovereign territory. No Iranian missile hit Israeli territory. All fell in Syria or were intercepted by the Iron Dome. No one was hurt; no structure or infrastructure was damaged,” Lieberman said.
