Israel hits several targets in Syria in return for alleged fire: army

Posted June 25, 2017

Israel hasn't played an active role in the war in Syria, but has responded in the past when the fighting spilled over across the Syrian border.

The Israeli Air Force on Saturday carried out an airstrike on positions of the Syrian regime's army forces at the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, local sources reported.

It said no injuries or damage was caused but with Israelis flocking to the Golan Heights in the summer for hikes and fruit picking, the military took the precautionary step of asking civilians to avoid gathering near the border.

About 125 tribes have signed a treaty opposing trophy hunting grizzly bears , which Native Americans consider a sacred animal. When Europeans resettled in the West, grizzly bears were trapped, shot, and poisoned to near extinction.

Syria's state news agency, quoting a Syrian army communique, alleged that the Israeli strikes coincided with an attack by militants in the area and suggested that Israel was aiding the Islamist forces, according to Reuters news agency. In most cases, Israel has claimed to be targeting arms convoys or warehouses belonging to Hizbollah, a key supporter of the Syrian regime.

The war monitor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said rebel groups in Quneitra had launched an assault and were storming army positions near Baath City.

Israel has protested to the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force, which maintains the 1974 cease-fire between Israel and Syria, a military spokesperson said.
