The Israeli army said Monday that it “thwarted” the attempt by “four terrorists” to place explosives on the Syrian border.
“We have just thwarted four terrorists’ attempt to place explosives near the security fence between Israel and Syria,” the Israeli army said in a message posted on their Twitter account.
As he explained, the Israeli troops and their aircraft were “fired at the troop” and “a coup d’état” identified. In this sense, the army has warned that “it is prepared for any scenario” and has warned that the “Syrian regime” is responsible for “every event” in the country.
The Israeli-Syrian border has been the subject of litigation between the two countries. To the east of the border is the Golan Heights, a Syrian territory that Israel conquered during the Six Day War (1967) and the Yom Kippur War (1973) and which was effectively annexed to the international community in 1981 in one movement accepted.
