Israel Attacks Pro-Syria Groups

Israeli forces have attacked pro-Syrian government groups in the countryside of Quneitra Province, two days after carrying out similar strikes in the same region.
An Aljazeera correspondent said Sunday's attacks targeted fighters loyal to the Syrian government in the Naba al-Fawwar area of Quneitra, which is located in the 30% of the Golan Heights not under Israeli occupation.
Three fighters from the pro-government National Defense Forces were killed and at least two more were wounded in the attack, an NDF official told AFP.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed the attack but did not have additional details.
Syria's official news agency SANA said Israel struck a Syrian Army position in Quneitra province on the Golan Heights on Sunday, "causing damage".
SANA said the Israeli fire came "after a bid by terrorist groups to infiltrate Syrian military positions was foiled".
The Syrian government accuses Israel of backing armed groups active in the country.
Israel occupied 1,200 square kilometers of the Golan heights from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the international community.
About 510 sq km of the Golan Heights are under Syrian control.
The two countries are still technically at war, although the border remained largely quiet for decades until 2011, when the Syrian conflict broke out.
