Israeli Tank Strikes Syrian Territory In Quneitra, Near Golan Border

Israel strikes Quneitra, near Syrian border with Golan Heights 

 
An Israeli tank struck Syrian territory in Quneitra, near the Golan Heights border, Syrian state news agency SANA said on Monday, without providing refuter details.

The media outlet cited its own reporter, who said the strikes caused “material damage” and nothing further.

The state-run outlet said the tank targeted a hospital and observation post “with a number of shells.”

Quneitra was re-gained by Bashar Assad’s regime forces in July 2018, having been held by a rebel faction for the majority of the country’s seven-year-long civil war. The area sits some 500 feet from the 1974 internationally-mediated ceasefire line.
