The Israeli Air Force has struck the Syrian Arab Army once again, marking the third time in 24 hours that they have violated Syrian airspace to attack the latter; however, this time, the aerial assault came via an unmanned predator drone outside of the Brigade 90 base in the Al-Quneitra Governorate on Friday afternoon.

Israel has officially conducted 16 airstrikes over southwestern Syria in the last 24 hours, making this targeted aggression the largest assault on Syria’s sovereignty since the 1973 October War that pitted the two countries against one another for control of the Golan Heights.

Yesterday’s attack on the towns of Al-Hamidiyeh, Al-Kawm, Al-Ba’ath, and Khan Arnabi resulted in the death of one civilian, along with five others that were reportedly wounded after Israeli helicopters pounded the Al-Quneitra Governorate.

According to officials from the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command, the Israeli Air Force’s airstrikes did little damage to the SAA’s positions at the Brigade 68 (West Ghouta), Brigade 90 (Al-Quneitra), and Regiment 137 (West Ghouta) bases.

The Spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) issued a statement on Thursday that alleged the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s prestigious “Al-Quds Brigade” was behind the rocket assault on Upper Galilee; however, they provided little evidence for this claim – Iranian Army officials have not commented on these allegations.

Prior to IDF Spokesperson alleging that Iran was behind the rocket attack, a number of Israeli media outlets reported that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ)  were the culprits; however, a source in Damascus confirmed that there are no PIJ contingents operating inside Syria.

Social media activists from the Syrian Opposition claimed that the Israeli Air Force struck the Syrian Army’s positions at ‘Assal Al-Ward in the Qalamoun Mountains; however, Syrian Army officials denied these allegations.
