Three Syrian tanks enter Golan Heights buffer zone

Three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized zone on the Golan Heights on Saturday afternoon, and remained there for several hours into the evening, Jerusalem Post informs. The IDF was waiting for the United Nations’ Disengagement Force on the Golan Heights to oversee their withdrawal. The tanks, which were involved in heavy clashes with Syrian rebels, encroached the decades-old cease-fire agreement between Jerusalem and Damascus. Israel lodged a complaint with the UN over the ceasefire violation. The defense establishment has concluded, however, that the movement of tanks was linked to the Syrian civil war, and not intended as an act of aggression against Israel.
