Israel Warns Nusra Front against Seizing Khodr Town in Golan

Israel Warns Nusra Front against Seizing Khodr Town in Golan”

Syrian rebel factions launched an attack on Syrian government territory in Quneitra on Friday, with the aim of connecting two insurgent-held areas.

The SOHR said government troops and allied fighters were among the casualties of Friday's clashes.

The IDF said they forced some ten villagers to return to Israel after they made it into the no-mans-land that separates Israel from Syria.

Jihadists launched an assault today on a government-held village in Syria's Golan Heights, killing at least nine people in a auto bomb, and clashing with regime troops, state media said. "The IDF is prepared and ready to assist the residents of the village and prevent damage to or the capture of the village Hader out of commitment to the Druze population", he added.

According to Syrian state media, rockets and gunfire followed the bombing in Hader, close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The SANA report said that Israeli forces closed all the roads from occupied Palestinian territories to prevent the arrival of hundreds of Arab citizens in the Golan Heights to support the people in Hader.

There are an estimated 20,000 Druze living under the Israeli-occupied portion of the Golan Heights which was captured from Syria in the 1967 Six Day war and was de facto annexed by Israel in the early 80s.

The Israel Police said as part of the general police preparation at the Golan Heights, forces were deployed and stationed at major intersections in the north.

Israel is widely believed to be harboring and supporting anti-Syrian government militants who have been wreaking havoc along Syria's Southwestern border regions.

The PA's foreign ministry charged in a statement on Saturday that Israel's announcement that it would defend the village of Hader was actually a forced reversal of Israeli policy.

In June, Syrian military sources said Israel's airstrikes on the Golan Heights coincided with a push by Al-Nusra terrorists against army positions, which was aborted.

Hezbollah fighters have been fighting alongside Assad government forces against rebel groups operating in the Golan area of Syria.

But the IDF statement reflected how the Druze are valued inside Israel as brethren by many Jews because thousands of them enlist in the IDF with the blessing of their communal leaders.

The PA ministry's statement accused Israel of supplying al-Nusra with weapons, salaries, medical aid and intelligence in exchange for keeping Israel's northern border with Syria safe.
