JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel accused the general in charge of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps’ external operations branch of orchestrating a rocket attack on Thursday against Israeli army bases on the Golan Heights from within Syria.

“It was ordered and commanded by Qassem Soleimani and it has not achieved its purpose,” Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant-General Jonathan Conricus told reporters.
