Surprise! Now Israel Is Bombing the Syrian Army

Israel attacks the Syrian Army after claiming Syrian shells landed in Israeli-occupied Syria. Any questions?

The "only democracy in the Middle East" continues to distinguish itself. 

Take the wheel, RT:

The Israeli Defense Force has attacked two Syrian army tanks after a dozen spillover projectiles landed in the Israel-controlled part of the Golan Heights from Syrian territory.

The Israeli military said several projectiles fired from Syria “hit an open area” in the northern Golan Heights. No injuries were reported.

Calling the incident an “unacceptable violation of Israeli sovereignty,” IDF aircraft targeted the “origin of launches and two Syrian tanks”.

Yes, an “unacceptable violation of Israeli sovereignty" ... in Israeli-occupied Syria. 



South Front has something interesting to add, pro-government sources are saying it was actually the Israeli-backed rebels who shelled Golan:

Since the Saturday morning, Al-Bath city in Quneitra has been under an attack from Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and its allies.

Many pro-government source reported that HTS [al-Qaeda] and some Free Syrian Army groups have repeatedly opened fire on the Israeli-held territory in order to provoke Israeli military strikes on the SAA .

To add to the absurdity of this situation, Israel has carved out a piece of Quneitra province, declaring a “safe zone” that now unofficially runs roughly 6 miles (10km) deep and 12 miles (20km) long beyond the demarcation line of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Israel. What a kind neighbor.
