Breaking News – Heavy clashes in Golan Heights – video

THE LEVANT – Syrian activists say government warplanes are targeting rebels near the country’s frontier with Israel in the Golan Heights, a day after opposition fighters captured a crossing point there.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the Syrian airstrikes struck several areas near the border in Quneitra province, including the village of Jaba. The Local Coordination Committees activist group also reported government airstrikes.

The Observatory says heavy clashes were raging between the rebels and Syrian military in Jaba and the surrounding countryside.

White plumes of smoke set off by exploding mortar rounds could be seen on Thursday from the Israeli side of the Golan. The sound of small arms fire could be heard echoing in the background.
