Israel's Iron Dome aerial defense system stopped numerous rockets, which led to bright flashes due to the explosions in the sky.
As tensions escalated, especially in its northern region bordering Syria, the Israeli Premier called upon the global community to prevent "the Iranian Al-Quds force from establishing itself in Syria".
Israel's defense minister says the military has struck "nearly all" of the Iranian infrastructure sites in Syria. "I hope we have finished this chapter", Liberman said at a policy conference north of Tel Aviv in Herzliya.
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani told German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a telephone call that he did not want "new tensions" in the Middle East. Rouhani did not mention of Israel's strikes in Syria, or those against the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
According to the IDF, some 20 rockets were fired at Israeli positions on the Golan Heights by Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)-Quds Force troops.
The escalation has led to a direct exchange of hostilities between Iran and Israel for the first time ever, over the past several weeks, with Iran launching its first missile barrage at Israel shortly after midnight on late Wednesday night, May 9.
The Iranian regime's deployment into Syria of offensive rocket and missile systems aimed at Israel is an unacceptable and highly risky development for the entire Middle East.
It alleged the rockets followed a "first Israeli bombardment on the town of Baath" in Quneitra province. Israel and Russian Federation also set up a mechanism in order to avoid direct conflict over their competing interests in Syria.
The air force officer told reporters that Thursday's air raids were coordinated with Russian Federation and the United States. Israeli cities would be hit, as might strategic targets in Iran. Gen. Amir Eshel, the departing commander of the Israeli Air Force, said Israel had launched almost 100 strikes on convoys since 2012.

There had been no comment from Iranian officials. "If we have rain, there will be a flood in them".
"My husband went out on to the balcony and saw the air defences", said 27-year-old Rim, adding she and her family were awakened at their home in a western suburb of Damascus by the raids. On April 30, Israel was said to have struck government outposts in northern Syria, killing more than a dozen pro-government fighters, many of them Iranians.
The strikes represent a massive step up in the fighting between Iran and Israel.
Israel has acknowledged carrying out over 100 airstrikes in neighbouring Syria since the civil war began in 2011, most believed to be aimed at suspected Iranian weapons shipments bound for the Hezbollah militant group.
At the start his meeting with Putin, Netanyahu remarked on the commemoration of the Soviet Union's victory against Nazi Germany and compared the threat that Israel faces from Iran today. Iran also could be wary of military entanglement at a time when it is trying to salvage the worldwide nuclear deal.
This escalation is only the second time that Iran has been accused of directly targeting Israeli soil, following a failed drone attack in February.
A day after it attacked Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria, the IDF released a short video showing an Israeli missile destroying a truckload of Syrian missiles.
The third is that Russian Federation, which itself has a large military presence in Syria, will continue to indulge Israel's repeated incursions, preferring diplomatic rebukes to military confrontation.
British Prime Minister Theresa May told Netanyahu in a phone call that Britain supports Israel's right to defend itself against Iranian aggression.Expectations of a regional flare-up, amid warnings from Israel that it was determined to prevent any Iranian military entrenchment in Syria, were stoked by U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement Tuesday about the withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
