Israel warplanes launch 3 attacks on Syria army positions
The Israeli regime has launched attacks on Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights, Press TV reported.
According to reports, the Israeli warplanes carried out three overnight raids on the Syrian army positions hours after the regime forces fired artillery rounds into the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.
Tel Aviv claims the attacks were carried out in response to several rocket attacks that earlier targeted the Israeli-occupied part of the territory.
The incident came days after an Israeli helicopter fired rockets on a Hezbollah convoy in the Golan Heights town of Qunaitra on January 17, killing six members of the Lebanese resistance group and an Iranian commander.
Hezbollah and Iran have vowed that their response to the attack would be extremely painful.
The Golan Heights have been under the Israeli occupation since the 1960s. The Tel Aviv regime captured the Syrian territory during the Six-Day War of 1967 and annexed the region in 1981.
