Around 18:30 the Syrian media reported that the IDF is once again attacked positions of Assad’s army. According to these reports, the blow was inflicted on the artillery positions, as well as on the army car. About the dead and wounded not reported.
The press service of the Israel defense forces does not comment on reports in the Syrian and Arab media.
This attack was followed by approximately an hour after the «al Jazeera» reported that in response to the fall of mortar shells in the Golan, the IDF struck Syrian army positions in the area of Quneitra. According to Syrian sources, the attack was wounded five people.
At about 15:45 in the Golan heights exploded several shells fired from Syria. The press service of the IDF said that the shells fell on unbuilt terrain. As a result of the fire no one was hurt and no material damage.
The army reported that, apparently, we are talking about accidental, not a premeditated attack.
It was the second attack against Israel from Syria in recent days. Yesterday, 24 June, about ten mortar shells exploded in Israeli territory in the Golan heights. In response to the fall of mortar shells from the air, the IDF attacked a Syrian army position. The blow was struck, in particular, on the two tanks and the firing point. Israel also sent a sharp protest to the command of the UN force (UNDOF) stationed on the Golan heights.
«The IDF will not tolerate attempts to strike at the sovereignty of our country and safety of its residents. The IDF considers the Syrian regime as responsible for what happens in its territory», — stated in the press service of the defense Army of Israel.
The weekly Cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began with comments about yesterday’s attack. In particular, he said: «Our policy is clear: we will not tolerate any random shelling or mortar or rocket, or of any other kind on any front. We powerfully respond to any attack on our territory or our citizens.»
