Early on May 6, Israeli combat helicopters attacked posts of the Syrian Arab Army in the northern countryside of al-Quneitra.
Local sources said several military posts located in the vicinity of the town of Jubata al-Khashab were hit. The town is located on the separation of forces line, a few hundreds of meters away from Israeli military positions in the occupied Golan Heights.
The Syrian Arab News Agency said that an “Israeli helicopter” had targeted al-Quneitra countryside, without providing any details on the issue.
According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, three personnel who were manning the targeted posts were injured as a result of the Israeli strikes. These claims are yet to be verified by any independent source.
A day earlier, a series of Israeli airstrikes hit several targets on the Syrian coast as well as in Hama. At least one civilian was killed.
Israel intensified its military campaign against Syria in the last few months. The large campaign is supposedly meant to stop Iranian entrenchment in Syria. However, many of the targets recently hit by Israel either belonged to the Syrian military or were of civilian nature.
