Around 6:30 P.M. (Damascus Time) on Thursday night, the Israeli Air Force struck a number cities inside the Al-Quneitra Governorate of Syria after the Spokesperson for Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) alleged that four missiles were fired into the occupied territory of Galilee, causing very little material damage to the agricultural sector in Israel’s northern countryside.
The Israeli Air Force attacked the cities of Al-Ba’ath, Al-Hamidiyah and Al-Kawm, along with Brigade 90 Base that is used by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to launch artillery shells into the Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) controlled areas of the Al-Quneitra Governorate.
According to a statement from the Spokesperson of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF):
“Confirmed: Rockets earlier today were fired by Iran funded Islamic Jihad. Syrian government is responsible for attacks emanating from Syria.”
The Palestinian resistance force “Islamic Jihad” reported that they did not participate in these attacks on Israel, despite the allegations stemming from the IDF’s Spokesperson and his office.
This is not the first time Israel has struck Syria: earlier this year, the Israeli Air Defenses downed a Syrian jet – killing the pilot – near the Al-Qaeda controlled Golan Heights, as they alleged that the aircraft was violating Israel’s airspace – following a thorough investigation; it was reported that the aircraft had not violated Israel’s airspace.
According to a military source in the Golan Heights, there have been no confirmed fatalities as a result of the Israeli Air Force’s unwarranted aggression towards the Syrian Arab Army.
