Israel launches war game near Syria border

The Israeli regime’s army has launched a military maneuver in the occupied Golan Heights near the northern border with Syria.

The drill, which included Armored Personnel Carriers (APC), tanks and ground forces, kicked off on Tuesday in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights.

There has been no report of the details of the war game.

Last month, the Israeli regime carried out a large-scale military drill in the occupied Golan Heights amid escalating tensions in the region over Tel Aviv’s recent strikes on Syria.

Hundreds of soldiers and tanks participated in the massive drill that began on May 28.

The Israeli military activities in the occupied Golan Heights came following several strikes by the Tel Aviv regime against Syria.

On May 5, the regime carried out an airstrike targeting a research center in a suburb of Damascus, which had been targeted in another Israeli airstrike in January.

The May 5 Israeli aggression was Tel Aviv’s second strike on Syria in three days.

On May 21, the Syrian army said it had destroyed an Israeli military vehicle that had crossed the ceasefire line in its territory in the Golan Heights.

According to the Syrian army, the Israeli military fired two rockets from the occupied site of Tal al-Faras into Syria overnight in retaliation.

Syria has been gripped by unrest for over two years, and many people, including large numbers of Syrian soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the foreign-sponsored militancy.
