Israeli army pledges help to Syrian Golan village

Israeli officials said they were looking at the possibility of assisting Hader, whose residents have Druze kinsman lobbying on their behalf in Israel.

Hundreds of Syrians demonstrated inside the occupied territories off the town of Hadar, which has been subjected, since the dawn, to a violent terrorist attack launched by al-Nusra and backed by the Israeli occupation entity from al-Tuloul al-Homr area that is adjacent to the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, local sources in the Occupied Golan told SANA.

The agency said the toll can rise as a number of injured are in serious condition and the ongoing clashes in the town make it hard to remove the injured to safety.

Responding to some allegations by Druze that Israel was assisting Tahrir al-Sham, the Israeli military said "the allegations of Israeli involvement and assistance to global jihadi elements in the fighting are groundless".

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor, said the clashes that followed the blast killed several forces on both sides.

People in the occupied parts of Syria's Golan Heights held a protest to condemn what they called Israel's support for anti-Damascus terrorists.

Clashes were reported between government and rebel forces, and one Israeli was lightly wounded by spillover fire.

Hader has been aligned with the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad (the Druze are typically loyal to whichever party is in power), making it a target for all of the various rebel and Islamist groups participating in Syria's civil war.

In Majdal Shams, Druze residents gathered along the buffer zone seeking to cross over and help.

According to Haaretz, the IDF pointed out that if Israeli military intervention had been required, the assessment was that the air force and artillery would have been deployed.

"This behaviour is a serious violation of the law", the Israeli army said, urging all civilians to refrain from crossing the fence or even approaching it. "We do, however, provide humanitarian aid to young boys and girls", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in June. "And we also seek to protect our Druze brothers".

The Wall Street Journal said in the same month that Israel had been providing Takfiri terrorists in Syria's Golan Heights with a steady flow of funds and medical supplies.
