IDF tanks at Tel Saki in the southern Golan Heights on Sept. 15, 2021

Israeli tanks opened fire late Wednesday night after lookouts spotted a number of unidentified suspects late Wednesday night during operations in the center of the Golan Heights.

The suspects were “situated in military positions” near the border with Syria, the IDF said in a statement.


IDF tanks opened “distancing fire” towards the suspects, along with flares, prompting the infiltrators to flee back into Syrian territory, a military spokesperson said.

“IDF lookouts identified several suspects situated in military positions, near the locations of the force,” the IDF spokesperson said. “The force fired flares and distancing fire from tanks, after which the suspects fled into Syrian territory,” he added.

No casualties were reported, and no further information was released.
