Late on February 27, Israeli attack helicopters carried out a series of strike on military positions in the southern Syrian governorate of al-Quneitra.
According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), three service members of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were “lightly injured” as a result of the Israeli strikes. The targeted positions were located near the towns of Al-Qahtaniyah and al-Hurriyah as well as in the vicinity of al-Quneitra city.
In the morning, an Israeli drone strike on the Druze town of Hader in al-Quneitra claimed the life of a Syrian civilian, Imad Tawil.
Israeli sources claimed that Tawil was working for Lebanon’s Hezbollah. However, the available information suggests that he was just a civilian.
The new wave of Israeli strikes may have targeted observation posts overlooking the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Last year, several Israeli airstrikes targeted such positions in Syria’s southern region.
