Israel will continue to beat the crap out of them if they act up…..no matter who they are.
The Syrian army, together with Iranian-backed Shiite militias, is working to retake the Kuneitra province while the Islamist rebel groups on the Israeli-Syrian border are increasingly cooperating.
Exclusive Report From Israeli-Syrian Border: Islamic State’s West Syrian Branch Attacks IDF On Golan Heights
The Islamist coalition is far from defeated and could pose a long-term danger to Israel.
Israel was still busy battling wildfires across the country when the Islamic State’s west Syrian branch, Jaysh Khaled Ibn al-Walid (formerly known as the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade), engaged the Israeli Defense Forces in a battle on the Golan Heights for the first time.
At 8:30 a.m. Sunday, ISIS operatives opened fire at a Golani Brigade patrol of the IDF near Avnei Eitan on the southern Golan Heights in north-east Israel.
The IDF soldiers had crossed the border fence to conduct an “ambush operation” while remaining within Israeli territory when they were fired upon by ISIS terrorists on the other side of the border.
The soldiers returned fire but then came under attack from mortar shells.
At that point, the Israeli Air Force intervened and a drone targeted the four terrorists with a missile while they tried to flee in a truck with a heavy machine gun on top of it.
IDF spokesman Col. Peter Lerner said that “it was a short exchange” and called it “productive,” meaning the four ISIS terrorists were killed.
