On August 2, the Israeli military announced that warplanes of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) bombed several fighters of the ISIS-affiliated Khalid ibn al-Walid Army near the occupied Golan Heights. According to the Israeli Broadcasting Corporation, seven militants were killed.
Hours after the airstrikes, Israeli soldiers carried out a search operation in the area and found several explosive belts and an AK-47 assault rifle.
The Israeli military said on Twitter that it is prepared for “a variety of scenarios” and added that it will “continue to operate to ensure the security of the citizens of Israel.”
This was the second attack of the Israeli military on the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army within ten days. On July 26, Israeli warplanes destroyed a rocket launcher of the ISIS-affiliate group in response to a rocket attack on the Golan Heights.
The few remaining fighters of the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army are currently hiding along the separation line with the Golan Heights and on the Jordanian border. Earlier, the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) clashed with a group of terrorists who attempted to sneak into the country’s territory.
