Report: IAF attacks Syrian target

A German report quoted a Syrian security official claiming an Israeli jet attacked positions in the Golan Wednesday, killing one and injuring others; Hezbollah denies the veracity of report, positing that explosion was caused by al-Qaeda in Syria.
An Israeli jet launched missiles at a military checkpost in the Quneitra Governorate in the Golan on Wednesday morning, according to a senior Syrian security official quoted by a German news agency. 

The report claimed that the attack resulted in the death of a civilian who crossed the border by mistake and the wounding of three more Syrian soldiers. 

The Lebanese Hezbollah-affiliated satellite television station, Al-Manar however, quoted officials denying that the the attack was carried out by the Israel Air Force (IAF). According to the station, Jabhat al-Nusra (the al-Nusra Front) – the al-Qaeda branch in Syria – launched two rockets from villages near the border killing civilians in the process.


The same officials claimed that the Israeli military was monitoring the points from where the rockets were launched. 

According to the reports published in media outlets identifying with Hezbollah, the Syrian army retaliated by destroying a vehicle which launched the rockets belonging to the al-Nusra Front.
