Worthy Christian News » Israel-Palestinian Conflict » Jihadists Taking Control of Golan Heights Border with Israel


JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– Roughly 95 percent of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights is controlled by jihadists associated with the Al-Nursa Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), an IDF commander told Israel's Channel 10.

Lt-Col. Anan Abbas, deputy commander of the Golan Brigade, told Israel's Channel 10 that a single Syrian army brigade controls the Quneitra border.

The Syrian army's 90th Brigade has been defending Quneitra against Al-Nursa Front and ISIL. Last week, a major position held by the Syrian brigade was overrun, and the weakened brigade may lose control of Quneitra, military sources said.

Last Sunday, a Syrian anti-tank missile hit a civilian truck and killed an Israeli-Arab teenager, and injured three others, including the boy's father.

Israel retaliated by sending its air force and struck nine army positions in Syria, including a regional command center.

However, it appears the anti-tank missile may have been fired in error.  Syria contacted Israel through the United Nations, saying the missile was thought to have been fired at a "terrorist" vehicle.

Israel is "inclined to accept the explanation," Israel's Channel 10 reported.
