The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) struck a Syrian Army position in the Golan Heights after a projectile allegedly fired from Syria landed in the area occupied by the IDF.
According to Syrian sources, the attack was carried out by an Israeli warplane and targeted a hill in the village of Khan Arnabeh in the southwestern Syrian province of Quneitra.
The IDF is not involved in the internal fighting in Syria, however, it will continue to implement the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement that includes maintaining the buffer zone

The attack came amid repeated Israeli claims that the Syrian military is about to violate or is already violating the buffer zone between Israel and Syria establsihed under the 1974 agreement. Using this as a pretext, Israeli officials threatened Syria with military strikes.
