By staff

Israeli war planes attacked Syrian military positions inside Syria, March 19. The Syrian Arab News Agency is reporting that one person was killed and seven more were wounded in the attacks.

On March 18, Israeli forces fired artillery, tank and anti-tank shells into Syria. The aggression followed the wounding of four Israeli soldiers in the illegally occupied Golan Heights.

A statement issued Syria’s Command of the Army and the Armed Forces said, “This new aggression came in a bid to divert attention from the successive victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army.”

In recent weeks the Syrian Army won a spectacular victory over U.S. and Israeli-backed terrorists in Yabroud City.
