Reports in the Israeli media say that for the second time in less than 24 hours, the Israeli Defense Forces raided the Syrian Army positions, after shells, originating from Syrian territory, fell north of the Golan Heights.

According to the field reports, the Israeli Air Force this time targeted a BMP military vehicle belonging to the Syrian army, while carrying out attacks in the southern Syrian border province of Quneitra.

Earlier on Sunday, several projectiles fired from Syria, reportedly hit an open area north of the Golan Heights. No deaths or injuries were reported.

Some of the Israeli sources claim projectiles were fired by the terrorist group Al Nusra Front deliberately, and in order to provoke the Israeli Defense Forces to bomb the positions of the Syrian Army and its allies in the vicinity. 

It is noteworthy that both, the shelling and the Israeli raids, came right in time when Al Nusra Front terrorists were trying to storm Madinat Al Baath in Quneitra.

The Russian Defense Ministry, however, said the Israeli aircrafts bombed the sites of Al Nusra Front terrorists and not those of the Syrian Army.

Meanwhile, Syrian Defense Minister General Fahd Jassem Al Freij, said that Syrian troops and their allies are now even more determined to finish the war against terrorists and those who support them.

“Our forces and our allies are now more determined to continue the war against terrorists and their supporters. The war will not stop until all terrorists are wiped out and security and stability are restored to every last part of Syria”, Freij was heard saying while visiting Army units at the southern front in Quneitra.

He also visited wounded soldiers at Tishreen Military Hospital in Damascus.

This is the second Israeli attack on the Syrian forces in less than 24 hours.

Yesterday, the Israeli Air Force targeted 2 Syrian tanks right when the Syrian Army was repelling a major assault by Al Nusra Front terrorists.
