The Israeli Defense Forces released video on Saturday purporting to show its jets taking out a Syrian heavy machine gun and two tanks after mortar fire hit parts of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The IDF warned against any "attempt to harm the sovereignty of the State of Israel or the security of its residents, and sees the Syrian regime as responsible for what is happening in its territory".

Israel launched strikes on Syrian military positions Saturday, close to the two countries' disputed border in the Golan Heights.

"The IDF will not allow any attempt to harm Israel's sovereignty and the security of its people, and sees the Syrian regime as responsible for what transpires in its territory", the IDF said in a statement, noting that a complaint has been passed on to UNDOF, the worldwide force in charge of keeping the peace along the border.

Forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah have been clashing with rebels not far from the Golan Heights.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor which has been reporting on Syria's six-year-war, said two Syrian soldiers were killed in the Israeli strike.

"We are acting strongly, with determination", the minister in a statement.

Israel did not confirm or deny the reported Damascus attack.

Israel retaliated within an hour with drone strikes on a group of Syrian tanks in the area surrounding Madinat al-Baath, near Quneitra. Israel annexed the Golan area following the Six-Day War in 1967, but the move was never recognized by the worldwide community.

The IDF added that the rockets were believed to be spillover from Syria's civil war.
