(Worthy News) - An air strike said to have been carried out by an Israeli jet hit a Syrian army post near the Syrian side of Golan Heights on Wednesday, two Syrian rebel sources told Reuters.
The Israeli army refused to comment on the report. Hezbollah, meanwhile, said that the explosions in the Golan Heights were caused by Nusra Front and not an Israeli strike. Later, Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV said Syrian government troops retaliated, hitting a Nusra Front vehicle from which the rockets were fired.
In recent weeks, there has been increased fighting in the Syrian border town of Quneitra. Israel has never publicly admitted to carrying out any such attacks in the past. [ Source ]
