IDF Kills Seven ISIS Terrorists Trying to Breach Israeli Border

UN peacekeepers return after 4 years to Israel-occupied Golan Heights near Syria

Last week, Israeli military forces targeted a Syrian Air Force fighter jet over the Golan Heights as it was flying in Syria's airspace and conducting a series of airstrikes against the positions of foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants in the occupied territories.

Iran has supported Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with weapons, cash and manpower, and Israel has carried out strikes on Iranian military assets in Syria.

The Syrian government says Israeli attacks are helping only terrorists and that the only Iranian troops on the ground in Syria are advisers helping the Syrian Arab Army fight jihadists.

Isreali soldiers patrol the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria, as seen from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, July 26, 2018.

"In Syria, as far as we are concerned, the situation is returning to the previous one before the civil war, meaning there is a clear address, there is responsibility and there is a central government", Lieberman told journalists while visiting Israeli air defences.

The remarks by Israel's defense minister signal an emerging Israeli accommodation with Assad, an old enemy who has not sought direct confrontation with Israel, as he regains control of Syria from rebels - including some Islamist groups.

With assault rifles and explosive belts, the operatives approached a security fence on Israel's side of the border overnight, an army spokesman said.

Following the May 10 attack, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that the IDF had destroyed "almost all of Iran's military infrastructure sites in Syria".

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitoring group, confirmed fighting between Assad's forces and Islamic State on the Syrian-held Golan, which also abuts Jordan.

The deployment of the Russian military police highlights the degree to which the Kremlin has become an influential actor in Middle East conflicts since its military intervention in Syria which turned the tide of the war in Assad's favor.

Lieberman said that, for there to be long-term quiet between Israel and Syria, Assad must abide by a 1974 United Nations -monitored armistice that set up demilitarized zones on the Golan.

Israel has been lobbying the Kremlin to use its influence with Assad, and with Tehran, to try to get the Iranian military presence in Syria scaled back.
