The Israeli claimed in a statement that 10 shells fired from the Syrian side had fallen in the Golan Heights and the airstrikes were a response to this. However, Israel didn’t say that the SAA had fired the shells.
Since the Saturday morning, Al-Bath city in Quneitra has been under an attack from Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and its allies.
Many pro-government source reported that HTS and some Free Syrian Army groups have repeatedly open fire on the Israeli-held territory in order to provoke Israeli military strikes on the SAA .
Israel argues that only the SAA has a responsibility of any firing on the Israeli-held areas.
Many believe that this Israel policy is clearly sided and aimed at supporting of terrorist groups fighting against the SAA on the Golan Heights front.
