IAF Blasts Al-Qaeda Terrorists in Syria, ‘as They Planted Bombs’

January 18, 2015  

Hezbollah’s television station, Al Manar, reported Sunday that an IAF helicopter fired rockets at Jabhat al-Nusra targets near the Golan border, in the early afternoon. According to Elnashra, a news source with close ties to Hezbollah, a senior Hezbollah operative was hurt.

Jabhat al-Nusra is Al Qaeda’s Syrian arm.

According to Al Manar, two rockets were fired at a target in Mazraat al-Amal near Quneitra.

Meanwhile, Al Mayadeen TV said that the missiles were launched by an IAF aircraft, without specifying that it was a helicopter.

Western security sources said that the missiles were fired at a team of terrorists who had begun laying explosive charges on the Syria-Israel border near Quneitra.

No casualties have been reported as of yet.

According to the report, shortly before the IAF struck, two drones were seen circling above the area, apparently to collect intelligence.

Mazraat al-Amal is located in the Syrian Golan, near the border with Israel, and recent reports said that Jabhat al-Nusra forces were occupying it.

The IDF refused to confirm or deny the report of the strike and said that it “does not respond to reports in foreign media.”

Earlier in the day, it was reported that Israeli forces fired smoke grenades and tear gas toward Lebanese territory. Three Lebanese soldiers were taken to a hospital for treatment following that incident.

Syrian plane crashes, 35 killed

At least 35 Syrian soldiers were killed overnight when an army cargo plane carrying food and ammunition crashed due to bad weather in the northwest of the country, media outlets reported Sunday.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the plane crashed after hitting electricity lines in heavy fog in the Idlib province, although Jahbat al-Nusra claimed responsibility for the incident on Twitter.
