Israeli Drones Attack Two Sites in Southern Syria

No casualties reported, only damage to sites

Israel carried out drone strikes in southern Syria’s Quinietra Monday morning,  attacking a site purported to be a Hezbollah base, and a second site which was a Syrian Army reconnaissance tower, near the Golan Heights.

Israel occupied the Golan Heights in 1967, though they are considered to still be part of Syria. Syria has a number of observation sites near the frontier, because Israel has at times militarized the heights.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said there was no information reported on any casualties from the attacks. They did, however, say that material damage was caused.

Generally, Israel does not comment on its many attacks on Syria. Syria’s government would normally report air defense involvement, which they’ve yet to do so far. The Syrian Foreign Ministry only commented to describe it as a “new aggression.”
