The Israeli troops targeted a position of the Syrian Army troops in the Southwestern province of Quneitra to assist Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists that have suffered a heavy defeat in battle with the government forces, a media outlet reported on Saturday.

Al-Mayadeen news network reported that the Israeli troops opened heavy fire at one of the positons of Tahrir al-Sham in Khan Arnaba region in Northern Quneitra after the government forces repelled a heavy offensive of Tahrir al-Sham in the region.

Al-Mayadeen further said that the Israeli attack did not leave any human casualties.

It went on to say that the terrorist groups in Quneitra had attacked the army stronghold in al-Ba’ath, Jaba and Tal Koroum regions before the Israeli troops launched their attack.

Al-Mayadeen further said that over 30 terrorists were killed or wounded in the militants’ failed attack on the army positions in three flanks near al-Ba’ath.

Meanwhile, field sources reported that Israeli troops launched artillery attack on Syrian army in Quneitra, adding that the Tel Aviv army forces transferred the wounded members of the terrorist groups from the Quneitra battlefield to occupied territories in Bariqa border region in Israel to treat them in their hospitals.

The sources went on to say that Israel has increased its backup for terrorists in recent weeks when Tahrir al-Sham intensified attacks on the safe villages and townships in Quneitra province.

In October 2017, the Israeli Army’s mortar units opened fire at the Syrian Army’s positions in Quneitra province, alleging that  its forces had come under attack by Damascus’ forces.

In the meantime, Spokesman for the Israeli Army Efikhai Adra’ei confirmed that the Israeli mortar units targeted the Syrian army positions in the village of Hafra in Quneitra province, claiming that the Israeli attack was in response to the Syrian mortar units’ attack on the Israeli positions in the occupied territories, Palestine.

The Israeli forces have many times targeted the Syrian Army troops on the pretext of mortar attack on their positons.
