Israeli warplanes have once again targeted Syrian government artillery positions in ’s .
Israel carried out the violation of Syrian airspace late on Tuesday, claiming that the attack was launched in response to three mortar shells launched from Syria and landed in the Israeli occupied territories.
There are no immediate reports of casualties or damage yet. It is the sixth such attack in just over a week.
Earlier, Syria denounced the Israeli regime’s Monday airstrike on the southwestern Quneitra province, situated in the Golan Heights, calling on the United Nations to take measures against the Tel Aviv regime over its support for terrorists operating inside the Arab country.
Syria says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups operating inside the Arab country. Moreover, the Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced equipment from the foreign-backed militants inside Syria.
Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria after the 1967 Six-Day War and later occupied it in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.
The regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area ever since and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.
