Israeli forces strike Syrian military targets in Golan Heights

(Excerpts from PressTV, 4 July 2016) ~ Israel says it has hit two Syrian army targets in the Golan Heights in response to what it calls stray fire from the Syrian side.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said on Monday that the Tel Aviv regime forces launched strikes against two Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights overnight.

She provided no further details about the targets that were struck or the weapons Israeli forces used to attack them.

The overnight attack came in response to what Israel called stray fire coming from the Syrian side.



Tel Aviv, which is believed to be one of the key supporters of terrorist groups in Syria, has targeted the region several times in recent years.

In September last year, Israel launched at least three airstrikes against Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights.

Last month, Syrian media reported similar attacks south of the city of Homs.

Syria says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups operating inside the Arab country.

The Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants inside Syria.

Reports say Israel has set up field hospitals in the occupied Syrian territory of the Golan Heights for the treatment of injured militants.

In December 2015, Daily Mail said the Israeli regime had saved the lives over 2,000 Takfiri militants at the cost of around USD 13 million since 2013.

Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria after the 1967 Six-Day War and later occupied it in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.

The regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area ever since and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.
