Seven dead in Israeli air strike on militants near Golan: army

UN peacekeepers return after 4 years to Israel-occupied Golan Heights near Syria

The Tel Aviv regime, at the time, claimed that its assault was in response to a barrage of 20 rockets fired from Syria at Israeli military outposts in Golan.

The terrorists were dressed partially in military uniforms, leading the IDF to believe they are part of the ISIS unit that is fighting a losing battle on the Syrian Golan Heights, Conricus said.

The incident took place on the southern Golan Heights, near the triangle of Syria, Jordan and Israel borders.

On Monday, the pro-Assad coalition in Syria finally finished off the last pockets of Islamist resistance along the Israeli border on the Golan Heights after a six-week-long campaign which included the "liberation" of the Daraa and Kuneitra provinces in southwest Syria. "Once the situation has been stabilized, these posts will be handed over to personnel from the Syrian government forces".

The area, peaceful for decades since the agreement, became a fighting ground at the height of the Syrian civil war, finally pushing the United Nations peacekeeping force out in 2014 after al-Qaida militants kidnapped 45 United Nations peacekeepers.

Netanyahu repeatedly traveled to Moscow and often called President Vladimir Putin to discuss the creation of a buffer zone free of Iranian forces along the border with Syria on the Golan Heights and later demanded Russian Federation would ensure Iran would withdraw from Syria completely.

In India, the company said a growing middle class and product introductions by domestic manufacturers are providing stimulus. Harley-Davidson also said it is developing "more accessible" offerings in the 250cc to 500cc range for the Asian market.

Israel has been blamed for previous attacks on a suspected Iranian military base in the el-Kisweh area.

It is therefore no exaggeration to say that Israel is now facing Iranian-trained and financed forces along two fronts in the north of the country: Lebanon and Syria. He said a preliminary assessment was that the infiltrators were Islamic State militants.

The Israeli air force late Wednesday struck the militants as they crossed into Israeli-controlled territory with weapons, military officials said.

"The IDF remains, on high readiness, and levels of alert for any threats - be it in the air or on the ground - and we of course remain committed to defend Israeli citizens and Israeli sovereignty", Conricus told journalists. Russian Federation on Wednesday said that Iran had withdrawn its heavy weaponry to about 50 miles from the border, a measure Israeli officials said was inadequate.

He said Israel will not accept any changes to the 1974 deal or the presence of any Syrian troops or allied militias inside the disengagement zone.

Rebels still control substantial territory in northern Syria, mostly along the Turkish border.
