Israel attacks Syrian posts after cross-border fire from Syria

Quneitra

Israel carries out occasional airstrikes in Syria against what it says are deliveries of advanced weapons to Hizballah.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors events in the war-torn country, said Israeli forces had fired missiles causing casualties among regime troops and loyal militias.

On Saturday, the Israeli Air Force attacked the Syrian government forces' tanks and artillery positions after 10 projectiles fell on the Israeli-controlled part of the Golan Heights.

Israel said it had attacked Assad regime military targets on Sunday after alleged stray shells from fighting in Syria's civil war landed inside the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. No Israelis were hurt or wounded in the incident and no damage was caused. The source did not mention Syrian fire into Israel and said the Israeli strike was in support of jihadist rebels.

Hours earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the Syrian spillover and Israeli retaliation that took place on Saturday and reportedly resulted in the death of two Syrian soldiers.




According to SANA, the battles in this region are between President Bashar Assad's army and the Nusra Front, a Salafist rebel group in Syria.

"We will respond strongly, resolutely and with levelheadedness to any such case", he said.

"The footage shows a precise strike on a heavy machine gun and two tanks from which errant fire hit the northern Golan Heights in Israel", an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesperson was quoted by local media as saying.

The Israeli planes destroyed positions from where cannon shots hit the Golan Heights, an action that Tel Aviv interpreted as an attack, the source added.
