On Sunday morning, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) fired a number of missiles into the Syrian Golan Heights in response to three missiles that were indiscriminately fired into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

According to a local activist in Khan Arnabeh, the Israeli Defense Forces fired 6 missiles into the village of Mahyress located near the besieged hills of Tal Al-Ahmar and Tal Al-Qaba’a inside the predominately Druze town of Hadar in the Golan Heights.

The missiles did minimal damage to the Syrian Armed Forces’ defensive positions; however, the soldiers protecting the strategic hilltops of Tal Al-Ahmar and Tal Al-Qaba’a believe that these IDF missile strikes were an attempt to propel the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” past their fortifications.

This is not the first time that the Israeli Armed Forces have attacked the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) inside the Golan Heights: in early August, the Israeli Air Force repeatedly struck the Syrian Army in the towns of Hadar and Khan Al-Sheih after the IDF Spokesperson reported that a missile entered Upper Galilee from the Syrian border.

Last year, the Israeli Defense Forces struck the Syrian Arab Army at the U.N. Ceasefire Border-Crossing after they alleged a rocket entered Israel from Al-Quneitra; this paved the way for Jabhat Al-Nusra to take full-control of this border-crossing.
