The Israel Defense Forces in a rare statement says it carried out tank strikes against two structures in the Syrian Golan Heights that violated a 1974 disengagement line.
The IDF says the temporary structures were used by the Syrian Army and were a violation of the 1974 Agreement on Disengagement between Israel and Syria.
“The strike was carried out after IDF soldiers identified the two structures in the area of the security zone yesterday,” the military says.
The IDF says the structures were “a clear violation” of the 1974 agreement, and it holds “the Syrian regime responsible for all activities occurring within its territory and will not allow any attempts to violate Israeli sovereignty.”
Earlier, Syrian opposition media reported that an Israeli drone strike killed two people near the southern Syrian town of Beit Jinn, close to the Israeli border.
