Iran's army in Syria attacks Israel with rockets, leading to IDF fighting back

Iran's got presence in Syria (and also Lebanon), and just the other night, they tried to attack, leading Israeli forces to retaliate and, thankfully, cause Iran a setback by several months in the area:
Iran’s Quds forces launched a barrage of rockets at IDF bases on the Golan Heights in northern Israel on Wednesday night, the first Iranian attack on Israeli soil in history. The assault prompted an extensive Israel Air Force (IAF) attack on dozens of Iranian targets in Syria.

Shortly after midnight, IDF defense systems identified approximately 20 rockets that the Iranian Quds forces had launched at IDF forward posts on the Golan Heights. The majority of the rockets missed their mark and fell in Syria territory, while four were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

The incoming attack set off air raid sirens in communities throughout the north.

The Iranian attack caused no injuries or damage and was essentially a resounding failure.

In response to Iran’s attack on Israeli sovereignty, IAF fighter jets struck dozens of military targets belonging to the Iranian Quds forces in Syrian territory.

As part of the wide-scale attack, said to be the largest in decades and possibly since the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the IAF struck Quds Force intelligence centers, Quds Force logistical command centers, a Quds Force military center and a Quds Force logistical center in Al-Kiswah, as well as an Iranian military base north of Damascus.

Additional targets included Quds Force ammunition depots in the Damascus International Airport, intelligence systems and outposts associated with the Quds Force, watchtowers, military posts and munitions in the buffer zone.

In addition, the Iranian missile launcher responsible for the missiles fired on Israeli territory was destroyed.
And this is great news. That said, Iran's nuclear arsenal still remains a threat, and will have to be dealt with as soon as possible, along with their tyrannical dictatorship.
