Israeli Troops Kill 4 Men on Syria Border

The Zionist armed forces on Sunday killed four people near the Golan Heights on the country’s border with war-torn Syria

Palestine: Zionist troopsThe Zionist armed forces on Sunday killed four people near the Golan Heights on the country's border with war-torn Syria, a security source said.

The incident occurred at night near the town of Majdal Shams, in the Zionist-occupied Golan, the source.

The Zionist army said on its official Twitter account that the operation targeted "terrorists" armed with explosives who "were en route to imminent attack on our forces. Our air force neutralized threat," without naming casualties.

In a statement issued after the attack, the Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised "the vigilance" of occupation troops, vowing that "every attempt to attack Israeli soldiers or civilians will be met with a decisive response like this operation which thwarted an attack," the statement from his office said.

The Zionist army seized 1,200 square kilometers of the Golan from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and annexed it in 1981 in a move never recognized by the international community.
