Israeli Hit by Syrian Gunfire; IDF Prepares to Enter Bloody Civil War

Israeli Hit by Syrian Gunfire; IDF Prepares to Enter Bloody Civil War

The statement was an unusually explicit Israeli pledge to intervene in the war in Syria, where Israeli officials are voicing deeper alarm at the role of Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah, which are fighting alongside the Syrian government.

There are an estimated 20,000 Druze living under the Israeli-occupied portion of the Golan Heights which was captured from Syria in the 1967 Six Day war and was de facto annexed by Israel in the early 80s.

In a conversation with Druze leader Mowafaq Tarif, the head of Israel's internal security service, the Shin Bet, said that Israel "would not allow terrorists to take over the village".

Fighting broke out between Syrian government troops and rebel fighters in Hader following the blast, leaving a Druze individual injured in the village of Majdal Shams on the Israel-occupied side.

"In the aftermath of the terrorist attack, terrorist groups carried out a heavy attack on Hader, and army units and the Popular Defence units [pro-government militias] clashed with the attackers", Sans said.

Druze residents tried to cross into Syria, but were held back by Israeli soldiers, Israel's military said on Twitter.

Watson finished the game going 12 for 23 in pass attempts for 102 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also noted that Watson has had setbacks in his life and "always comes back stronger".

Syrian state media have accused Israel of engineering the jihadist attack on the town.

The retraction, the statement added, came "under pressure from Druze reactions in Israel" to "the suspicious relationship between the regime in Tel Aviv" with al-Qaeda and al-Nusra.

The Israeli Druze who broke through the fence did so in response to a major battle that was transpiring throughout Friday morning in Khader, where earlier nine people had been killed and 23 injured when a auto bomb exploded.

Israel has declared the Golan Heights to be a closed military zone in order to undermine any infiltration from the Druze neighbourhoods on the Syrian side of the border.

Speaking from London, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "we safeguard our borders".

The rocket attacks are also believed to be coordinated, with Israel always holding the Syrian government accountable and using them as a pretext to respond even though the projectiles always land in open fields. Such "red lines" include the violation of Israeli sovereignty through deliberate or accidental attacks, Iranian-backed militias taking positions on the Golan border, and attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah.
