A number of fighters, which Israel claims were affiliated with ISIS, were killed in an Israeli strike on Sunday, following an alleged attempted ambush of Israeli soldiers in the occupied Syrian ¬†Golan Heights.
According to Haaretz, the attempt was carried out by an organization named ‚ÄúShuhada al-Yarmouk‚ÄĚ ¬†which has pledged allegiance to ISIS.
No soldiers were wounded.
Haaretz said, according to the PNN, that several mortar shells exploded after a brief exchange with Isreal’s¬†Golani Brigade before the¬†air force spotted a car armed with a heavy machine gun. The aerial vehicle bombed the car, and it appeared as if its four occupants were killed.
A senior military officer said the car carrying the machine gun was several hundred meters from the border.
