    Syria began construction of fortifications within the DMZ established in 1974. Thi is a direct violation of the truce, and Israel responded with artillery to take are of the fortifications.
    the violation took place near the Druze village of Hadar. While Hadar is on the Syrian side of the line Israel has it under its protection from ISIS goons, as Druze on the Israeli side of the line insisted. Syrian forces returned to the area recently with the disappearance of the ISIS goons. The Syrians were ostensibly protecting the village from the return of ISIS

    Bullshit. Hadar is threatened by "rebels" and they are supported by Israel. But Israel obviously is not supporting al-Qaeda taking Hadar.

    "An Israel tank fired a warning shot towards the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Golan Heights region of the Al-Quneitra Governorate, the IDF claimed on Saturday.

    Damascus is yet to comment on the situation. The two countries have been in a state of war for decades with a peace treaty never signed.

    According to an IDF source cited by RIA Novosti, Israeli troops have opened warning fire toward Syrian government forces. However, no official confirmation by the Israeli Defense Forces has followed so far.

    The move, which is yet to be commented on by the Syrian government, was explained by Tel Aviv’s opposition to Damascus erecting a military post in a demilitarized zone on the border it considers to be a violation of agreements. In addition to a tank firing what was described as a “warning shot,” Israel has also sent a complaint to the UN Disengagement Observer Force Zone (UNDOF).

    “The Syrian armed forces have violated the ceasefire agreement of 1974, carrying out construction work […] in the northern part of the demilitarized zone between Syria and Israel. The agreement prohibits the entry of heavy construction machinery or military vehicles there,” the IDF source said.

    There has been no immediate information about the losses from the Syrian side.

    Tel Aviv and Damascus, which have never a peace treaty never signed and have multiple times exchanged tit-for-tat attacks in border areas, had signed the Agreement on Disengagement in 1974, which officially ended the Yom Kippur War, a time when Israel had control over the entire territory of the Golan Heights, including the area belonging to Syria.

    he Israeli annexation of the disputed territory of the Golan Heights, a part of which had been first seized during the Six-Day War in 1967, has been repeatedly condemned by the international community. According to the UN resolution adopted in 1981, the Golan Heights were declared as illegally occupied by Israel. In 2008, the United Nations reiterated its calls for Tel Aviv to return the ‘annexed territory’ — something that, according to the incumbent PM Benyamin Netanyahu, “Israel will never do”.

    Most recently, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that the country would “maintain absolute freedom of action” in Syria as Tel Aviv is guided only by the interests of national security."

    Horrible mixed metaphor, but I get what he means.

    Assad walks on the blood of innocents ....

    Hadar is in a messy area. The line goes south for a bit, and Hadar is in a bit of Syria blocked on three sides. back in 74 the folks who drew yje line should have gone north rather than south
