Around noon today, pro-government Druze units commanded by Brigadier General Osama Zahreddine – brother of renown Major General Issam Zahreddine – ambushed an outpost controlled by Islamist fighters in the Golan Heights, bordering Israel.

According to a military source briefing Al-Masdar News, paramilitary loyalists sneaked in on the Al-Naqqar checkpoint and opened fire on rebels, killing 8 fighters before withdrawing to the town of Hader. Government troops suffered no casualties during the ambush but did not gain any ground in what could be described as a “hit and run” tactic.

Al-Naqqar checkpoint is located near the rebel-held Hamiryah hill in the northern part of the Syrian Golan Heights.

Quneitra province has recently suffered from a series of Israeli airstrikes on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) controlled villages. Syria and Israel are still at a state of war following three major wars in the past century.
