DAMASCUS, Syria, The Syrian air defences, responded to a new Israeli attack on Syrian positions, in the southern province of Quneitra on Wednesday. The Israeli war planes fired several rockets on some Syrian military positions, in the vicinity of the town of Hadar and Tal Kurum Jaba, in Quneitra.
The report said, the Syrian air defences confronted the Israeli attack in the Qurs al-Nafl area in Quneitra. The Israeli attack comes as the Syrian army bombarded areas under the control of the Khalid Bin al-Walid group, which is allied with the Daesh, in southern Syria, near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The Syrian side has always accused Israel of backing the ultra-radical groups in southern Syria.
On July 8, Syrian state TV said that, the Syrian air defences hit an Israeli war plane, during an Israeli air strike on Syria's T-4 Air base in central Syria.
Israel has carried out many attacks on several military positions, during the seven-year conflict, claiming it was targeting Iranian fighters and weapons.
But Syrian government officials, repeatedly said that, the targeted areas are Syrian bases and that the soldiers who got killed were Syrians.
This comes as the Syrian army is advancing in southern Syria, in areas close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, raising the ire of Israel, which fears a growing influence of the Iranian-backed fighters of Hezbollah in that area.
