The remnants of a missile fired during Israel's overnight raids in Syria were found Monday in an agricultural field in the Wadi Hawsh al-Ghanam area in Lebanon's Zahle district, the Lebanese National News Agency said.
Israel struck what it said were Iranian targets in Syria early Monday in response to missile fire it blamed on Iran, sparking concerns of an escalation after a monitor reported 11 fighters killed.
It said the strikes were in response to a medium-range, surface-to-surface missile the Quds Force fired from Syria at the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Sunday, which Israeli air defenses intercepted.
Israel said targets included munitions stores, a site at Damascus International Airport that was allegedly the Quds Force's main logistics hub in the country, an Iranian intelligence installation and an Iranian military training camp.
It said it also hit Syrian air defense batteries in response to dozens of missiles fired from them.
