According to pro-government sources, Israeli Air Force warplanes and helicopters carried out airstrikes on the Syrian Army in Al-Baath City in Quneitra province for the second day in a row.

The Al-Mayadeen TV channel said that the Israeli Air Force targeted a BMP-1 vehicle of the Syrian Army, which was carrying wounded soldiers.

According to a unconfirmed report from Al-Masdar News, another air strike targeted a field hospital of the Syrian Army in Al-Baath city.

Earlier today, the Israeli military spokesman announced that artillery shells had landed in the Israeli-controlled territory in the Golan Heights. The source confirmed that the shells didn’t lead to any injuries or losses.

The Russian state-run news agency Ria Novosti reported on Sunday that the yesterday Israeli airstrikes in Syria targeted tanks and vehicles of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) instead of government forces as Syrian sources reported. However, official sources in the Syrian Army denied this report.
An officer of the Syrian Army said to the Military Media: “They haven’t advanced even an inch, they have exploited the strikes of the Israeli enemy to open a gap and they have been returned from where they came from.”
Syrian sources confirmed that the strike was coordinated and targeted a specific defensive area in order to help Al-Qaeda-liked HTS militants to enter Al-Baath City, but the Syrian Army so far managed to repel the attack.
