An Israeli fighter jet fired a rocket at a Syrian military site in the country’s southern province of Qunaitera on Wednesday, leaving no casualties, pro-government al-Watan electronic newspaper reported.

The warplane targeted the position at the outskirts of al-Baath city in Qunaitera, said the report, adding that no casualties have fallen during the attack.

Meanwhile, pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV said that the Israeli war jet fired the rocket from inside the airspace of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The report said that the targeted site faces a position of the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front in Qunaitera.

Israeli media reportedly said that the Israeli rocket fire came as a response to a mortar shell that landed at the northern rim of Golan Heights.

Israel has repeatedly targeted military positions in Syria, some of which were in the capital Damascus.

Last month, Israeli rocket fire targeted arms depots in the Mazzeh airbase west of Damascus, causing big fire.

The Syrian government repeatedly accused Israel of supporting to radical rebels in Syria, particularly those operating in Qunitera near Golan Heights. Enditem
