An IDF patrol escaped injury Friday morning when an explosive device was detonated as their vehicle was travelling in the Golan Heights along the Syrian border.
No damage was reported.
The IDF has not confirmed that the blast was intentional and it might have come from an old land mine, but most military sources concluded that a bomb was intentionally placed by fighters at war with Syrian President Bassar al-Assad. ISIS and Al Qaeda control most of the Syrian aside of the Golan Heights.
Last week, Israel fired a Patriot missile to shot down a Syrian fighter that had strayed into Israeli air space, prompting Syrian officials to charge Israel with an “act of aggression.”
