Israeli air forces attack Syrian position in Qunaitera
DAMASCUS, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Israeli air forces attacked a Syrian military position in Syria's southern province of Qunaitera on Wednesday, the Syrian army said in a statement.
The attack led to the destruction of a cannon in the countryside of Qunaitera, said the statement.
It added that the attack comes after the successes the Syrian forces have made in foiling a wide-scale attack the terror-designated Nusra Front had unleashed in Quniatera earlier on Wednesday.
"The Israeli attack is an attempt to boost the morale of the of the terrorists," the statement said.
It stressed the Syrian army's resolve to continue the battles against the terrorist groups, which it said are the tools of Israel.
The Syrian government has repeatedly accused Israel of aiding the terror groups in Qunaitera, especially as the Israeli shelling on Syrian military positions often comes after a heavy blow the rebels receive by the Syrian army in that area.[ Editor:yfs001]
