Israeli warplanes bomb IS militants inside Syria


The Israeli Air Force has bombed a building used by Islamic State (IS) militants in the Syrian-controlled Golan Heights, Israel’s military says, according to the BBC.

The BBC added that the air raid targeted an abandoned UN peacekeeping facility used as a base for an attack on Sunday against Israeli soldiers on Israeli-occupied territory.

The four militants behind that attack were killed in an earlier strike.
It was believed to be the first direct assault by IS on Israeli troops in the Golan since Syria’s civil war began, the BBC reported.

The Jerusalem Post newspaper quoted Israeli military officials as saying that that the “abandoned military facility” in the southern Golan targeted overnight had constituted “a substantial threat in the area”.
