Israel Destroys Syrian Army Post in the Golan Heights

The Israeli army on Tuesday destroyed a Syrian regime monitoring post in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, a third such operation during this year.

The military “destroyed the Syrian army’s front post in the Israeli area west of the Alfa line in the Golan Heights,” Israeli military spokesman Avichay Adraee wrote on Twitter, referring to a UN patrol buffer zone between the two countries.

The spokesman also added that the army “would not tolerate any attempt to violate the sovereignty of the Jewish state”. Info on victims or deaths is not yet available. Since the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011, Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes in that country.

They targeted government troops, paramilitary forces with close ties to Iran, and militants from the Hezbollah Lebanese Shiite paramilitary movement. Israel rarely confirms reports of its operations in Syria.

The Jewish state army reported that in 2020 alone, about half a hundred targets were struck. Israel also said that it seeks to prevent Iran, one of the Syrian regime’s most important allies in a decade-long civil war, from establishing itself on the brink of a Jewish state.
