The latest in a series of airstrikes against targets along the Syrian frontier in the Golan Heights, an Israeli warplane attacked and killed four people they say were “clearly planting a mine.”
The attack took place on the slopes of Mount Hermon, most of which is actually in the buffer zone between the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and Syrian Golan. The military identified the target as near a fence. The identities of the slain are unknown.
This is the third Israeli strike in the region in the last several days, following a strike Friday night against the Syria-Lebanon border, and another against Syrian military bases earlier last week.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cheered the “decisive response” against the four men, saying it “thwarted an attempted terror attack,” and insisting such strikes will continue.
