Israel launched an attack on Syria Thursday in response to rocket fire which landed near the border with Lebanon.Israel's army said the strikes were a response to cross-border rocket fire from Syria.Dawoud Shehab, an Islamic Jihad spokesman in Gaza, denied that the group had fired on Israel from the Syrian Golan.While saying it is keeping out of the Syrian civil war and that some of the shooting against its side of the Golan has been stray fire, Israel has usually retaliated against Damascus' assets over the armistice line.The attack was unusual as that frontier had been largely quiet since the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah.
