Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria during the Six-Day War in 1967, and has been in control of them since 1981 after passing the controversial Golan Heights Law. The status of the mountain plateau is considered one of the main sticking points in the Israeli-Syrian conflict.
The Israeli Defence Force has neutralised several homemade bombs in the southern Golan Heights. In a tweet, the force put the blame on the Syrian government for “all events in Syria”, noting that Israel refuses to tolerate any violation of its sovereignty.
We just exposed a number of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) near the Israeli side of the Alpha Line on the southern Golan Heights.
We hold the Syrian regime responsible for all events in Syria and will not tolerate any violation of our sovereignty. pic.twitter.com/JoWR2JNM89
