News the HP Doesn't Cover: Israel Strikes Back Against Syria

The Huffington Post has a proud tradition of waiting until Israel responds to violence before covering the news, but as of yet it hasn't covered this news:
The IDF fired a Tammuz missile Wednesday at a Syrian target across the northern border, in response to mortar shells from Syrian territory landing near an army position in the Golan Heights and injuring two soldiers.According to the IDF, the target in Syria took a direct hit. It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties on the Syrian side.As a result of the shelling from Syria earlier in the day, one Israeli soldier suffered light injuries from shrapnel and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. The second soldier suffered shock and was treated on site.It was the first time Israelis were injured in the spillover from the Syrian civil war.
