Israel Shells Syrian Military Sites over Golan Attack

(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Israel attacked several Syrian military sites on Wednesday in retaliation for a roadside bombing that wounded four Israeli soldiers on the occupied Golan Heights on Tuesday, the Israeli military announced. The targets included a Syrian military headquarters, a training facility and artillery batteries. Aircraft carried out the overnight strike, Israeli military spokesman Peter Lerner said. He described targets as military facilities on the Syrian-held side of the Golan. Israel captured the Golan from Syria in the 1967 war and annexed it in a move not recognized abroad. Tuesday's wounding of the soldiers as they patrolled the separation line on the strategic plateau marked Israel's worst casualties there since clashes erupted in Syria more than three years ago. Israel blamed Damascus for the roadside bombing, though parts of the Syrian-held side of the Golan are controlled by rebels, including al Qaeda-inspired militants
