The Israeli air force fired on a Syrian mortar on Golan heights

The Israeli air force fired on a Syrian army position in Samdani in the Golan heights. On Wednesday, June 28, RIA Novosti said a source.

According to the informant, the blow fell on the detachment of the Syrian government forces. Among soldiers nobody has suffered.

This is the third attack by the Israeli air force over the past five days. 24 and 25 June, air strikes had attacked the positions of Syrian troops in the al-Baath. The attack was a response to several shells coming from Syria and exploded in the Northern Golan.

The Golan heights, for half a century controlled by Israel, is one of many disputed territories in the middle East. From 1944 to 1967, they belonged to Syria, then during the six day war were captured by the Jewish state and subsequently annexed. The UN Security Council has recognized the incident as illegal. Both Israel and Syria consider the Golan part of its territory.
