ISWNews Analysis Group – Last night, the Zionist settlements in the occupied Golan were targeted by the “Liwa al-Quds” rocket attack during two phases.
The Palestinian “Liwa al-Quds” group fired at least six rockets from Syria towards the Zionist settlements in the occupied Golan during two stages on the late hours of the 8th and the early hours of the 9th of April. Following these attacks, sirens were sounded in the occupied Golan. It is said that one of the rockets hit a non-residential area in the Golan.
The Israeli army announced that at least three rockets were fired from Syrian territory towards the occupied Golan, two of these rockets hit an open area in the occupied Golan, and one of them was intercepted. Also, the spokesman of the IDF announced that the source of the rocket fire in southern Syria was targeted by Israeli artillery units.
Few hours after the attacks, the “Liwa al-Quds” group published a statement and took responsibility for the rocket attacks. The statement said: “Targeting occupied places in the Golan is done in response to the attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque. We threaten Israel with a decisive response from the southern front of Syria against any aggression.”
It is worth mentioning that on April 6, unknown groups fired more than 30 rockets from an area in the south of Lebanon towards the Israeli settlements in the north of occupied Palestine, wounding at least four Zionists.
