Israel inevitably resorts to "aggressive" military action sometimes to maintain security and quiet on its northern frontier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted Wednesday in the wake of Israeli air strikes on Syrian military targets. The remarks came hours after Israeli warplanes struck Syrian military and security targets in retaliation for a roadside bomb attack on a patrol Tuesday in the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau that Israel captured from Syria in 1967 and later annexed.
