(February 12, 2019 / JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed on Tuesday that Israel struck in Syria on Monday evening.
“We operate every day, including yesterday, against Iran and its attempts to entrench itself in the region,” he said upon leaving for a summit in Warsaw about the Middle East.
Israel launched airstrikes along the Golan Heights border region, hitting a razed hospital and an observation position in Quneitra, creating only material damage, according to local Syrian media.
Tanks targeted numerous regime posts in Quneitra linked to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, the report added.
The strikes were the first on regime posts along the Golan Heights border since mid-2018.
Israel reopened its side of the border crossing in Quneitra a few months ago after a joint agreement with Syria and the United States, who called on the Mideast nations to allow peacekeepers to work in the area.
