Syrian troops have bombarded the Golan ceasefire zone neighboring the Zionist entity in response to militants attack on a military police checkpoint, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.Insurgents attacked the checkpoint in the town of Khan Arnabeh just beyond the outer ceasefire line along the demilitarized zone neighboring the Zionist entity on Saturday.
The report comes amid ongoing clashes between the Syrian army and foreign-sponsored militants in the country. Golan has been tense since the beginning of the Syrian unrest nearly two years ago, at times with mortar and gunfire spill over into the Israeli-occupied zone.
The Israeli regime seized the Syrian territory on the strategically important Golan Heights in the 1967 war. Tel Aviv annexed the territory on December 14, 1981 — a move which has been met with international condemnation.
Meanwhile in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo, clashes erupted between militants and government forces in the vicinity of the Aleppo international airport, Nayrab military airbase and around the Kwiyres military airbase in the Eastern part of the city.
Four Turkish officers were also killed during the Saturday clashes in Aleppo, Syria’s second city and its former commercial hub.Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the Syrian turmoil.
The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals. Several international human rights organizations have accused foreign-sponsored militants of committing war crimes.
