Breaking!!! Israel is Striking Syria- Second Night in a Row

Just about an hour after the earlier post titled:

Israel Provokes & Will Continue to Provoke Until...

 .........the desired response is given.

What is the breaking news? 

Syrians Report Israeli Strike on Assad Targets in Golan Heights; Rocket Alerts Sound in North
Yes, Israel is striking Golan territory still held by Syria.

You will notice I am using the earlier originating Haaretz headline?
Israel is claiming that annexed Golan territory was targeted by rocket fire first and they are responding.."The Golan Regional Council released a statement saying that several towns in the Golan were targeted by rocket fire and that residents of those towns are requested to stay in shelters until notified otherwise"
Of course we have no idea who, if anyone at all, would so conveniently fire the rockets allowing for Israel to 'respond'.

RT: Syrian Territory shelled from Israeli-occupied Golan Heights – state media
Several shells have reportedly hit the Syrian governorate of Quneitra, launched from the Israeli-occupied portion of the Golan Heights. 
Air raid sirens were reported going off in the Israeli-controlled area around the same time.
The shells were fired from the Israeli-controlled area towards the city of Baath in northern Quneitra, Syria’s state SANA news agency reported. There have been no reports of injuries as a result of the attack, it said.
Within minutes of the reported shelling, the Israeli military said that sirens were heard in the occupied Golan Heights, without providing any details as to what triggered the alert.
“The details are being looked into and will be given shortly,” the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) wrote on Twitter.
It is unclear so far which of the incidents came first.
Israeli media reported that the sirens might have been activated as the Iron Dome missile defense system was deployed to shoot down incoming projectiles. There have also been unconfirmed reports of explosions on the Israeli side.
Footage posted by The Jerusalem Post military correspondent Anna Ahronheim on Twitter shows sirens going off in the village of Majdal Shams, north of the Golan Heights.
Israeli media, citing the army, reported that its missile defense shield repelled an attack allegedly staged by Iran’s Quds Force, during which some 20 missiles were launched into the Israeli-controlled territory. The military said that some of the projectiles were shot down. The army says there were no injuries.
Meanwhile, the Golan Regional Council urged residents to stay in shelters, saying that the area has come under rocket fire, Haaretz reported.
The reported showdown comes just a day after Israeli forces struck a Syrian army position in the south of Damascus. Israeli warplanes were reportedly spotted in Lebanese airspace in the run-up to the attack. Rebel-linked sources reported that the strike was aimed at an Iranian military installation and resulted in the death of several Iranian servicemen. However, according to SANA, the attack, which came on the heels of US President Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, caused no casualties.
I don't think this is going to stop- Israel desires the escalation- Israel won't stop.

1-Breaking: Israel Strikes Syria (Updated) Coming hot on the heels, and predictably so, of the cancellation by the US of the P5+1 there are reports of Israeli Air Force strikes on Syria.

2-Trump Breaks Nuclear Deal (P5 +1) Risks Increased Middle East Conflict
