ISIS attacked near northeastern Israeli border

In a report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 'unidentified' aircraft attacked ISIS forces near the Syrian-Jordanian-Israeli border; opposition forces attribute strike to international coalition against ISIS, but some say Israel may be behind it.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that Tuesday, "unidentified" aircraft attacked ISIS forces at the Syrian-Jordanian-Israeli border.



According to the report, it is not clear whether these planes belong to the international coalition against ISIS.

The attacks were directed against the ISIS branch in the Golan, the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, and at least 12 members of the organization were killed and many were injured. In addition, it was claimed that the focus of the attacks was the village of al-Jamala and areas close to it in the Yarmouk basin.


There has been no confirmation so far for the reports— not from the international coalition against ISIS, not from Jordan, and not from the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army.


Israel's name was also raised as someone who might be responsible for the attack. If it turns out that this is an attack by the international coalition, then this is a precedent, since to date, as far as is known, those who attacked the Da'ash branch in the Golan were Israel and Jordan.


If it does turn out that the international coalition was behind this attack, it will be unprecedented, since to date—as far as it is publically known—those who attacked ISIS branch in the Golan were Israel and Jordan.
