An Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle has reportedly targeted Syrian army positions in Golan Heights after a projectile allegedly fired from Syria landed in the occupied territory.
Lebanon-based Arabic-language al-Manar television network reported on Friday that the drone struck a Syrian battle tank as well as a 105mm cannon in Syria’s strategic southwestern region of Quneitra near the border with Israeli-controlled Palestinian territories.
Earlier, the Israeli army had announced in a statement that “an errant projectile fired from Syria had hit an open area in the northern Golan Heights,” noting that the round was “a result of internal fighting in Syria.”
It is the fourth time in a week that projectiles from Syria have hit the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
During the past few years, Israel has frequently attacked military targets in Syria in what is considered as an attempt to prop up terrorist groups that have been suffering heavy defeats against Syrian government forces.
