An Israeli plane attacked a military base along the Syrian-Lebanese border on Wednesday belonging to a pro-Syrian Palestinian faction, wounding six people, Syrian state television said.

In a newsflash, state television quoted a military source as saying Israeli planes had at 3:15 p.m. (1215 GMT) struck a base belonging to the Damascus-based Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC), a faction that backs President Bashar al-Assad.

Asked about the reported strike, an Israeli military spokeswoman in Jerusalem declined comment.

Earlier on Tuesday, an air strike by an Israeli surveillance plane hit a car in Quneitra province in southwestern Syria, killing two members of a militia fighting alongside the Syrian military, Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV and Syrian state television reported.[L5N1095FI]

The attack struck the car on the outskirts of the village of Hader, a Druze area at the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The dead were identified as members of the National Defence Forces, a pro-government militia whose members often come from the areas where they fight.

    What’s wrong with 3 members of the civilian National Defense Force who were en route to Zabadani to back up the sovereign Armed Forces of Syria?
