0

QUNEITRA: Israel carried out retaliatory air raids on Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights overnight after a teenager on the Israeli side was killed in an attack from Syria, the army said early Monday. “The IDF [Israeli army] targeted nine Syrian army positions in response to the earlier attack that originated in Syria killing an Israeli teenager and injuring two other Israeli civilians,” an army spokesman said. Sunday’s action marked the most serious escalation along the ceasefire line with Syria since the 1973 Middle East War, with Israel’s defense minister warning Damascus would pay a “high price” for helping militants bent on harming the Jewish state. There were no reports of Syrian casualties.
