The Israeli minister of military affairs has defended the regime’s recent attacks on Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights. Avigdor Lieberman said the Israeli army would continue its attacks more forcefully in the future. He was referring to Tel Aviv’s air raids in Quneitra countryside over the past two weeks. Israel’s air force has been targeting the area several times in response to what it calls stray fire from the Syrian Golan Heights. The aggression comes as the Syrian forces have been battling foreign-backed terrorists there. Damascus says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri groups operating inside Syria.
