Residents on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights were woken up by alert sirens at 5:55 AM on Saturday morning,. The sirens went off in response to fighting in Syria along the border with Israel.

At first the IDF thought a rocket had fallen on the Israeli side of the border, but apparently the sirens went off from the explosions just across the border.

At least 5 Syrian rebels were killed and 20 wounded, and an unknown number of Assad’s troops were killed in that heavy fighting.

Last week Assad brought in a large number of troops near Kuneitra to try to take it back, after he lost it to the Jihadi rebels.
