'Bomb attack kills 9 in Syria Golan Heights village'

Nusra Front car bomb kills nine in southwest Syria

In a departure from Israel's policy of minimal intervention in Syria's civil war, the Israeli army said it would help defend a Druze village in Syria where Sunni militants killed nine people.

The Syrian state news agency Sana said the auto bombing was carried out by Jabhat Al Nusra, using the former name of Al Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, which it changed to Jabhat Fatah Al Sham after claiming to have severed ties with the terrorist group.

Syrian government forces and their pro-government allies first broke the militant group's siege of their part of the city in September and have been advancing against IS positions since then.

However, in Lebanon and Syria, the Druze minority is widely perceived as allied not only with the Alawite group of Assad, but also with the Shiite Hezbollah terrorist group, which fights for Israel's destruction.

Hader lies in southwestern Syria's Quneitra province, around 70 per cent of which is held by either rebel or jihadist groups while the government controls the remaining 30 per cent, according to the Observatiory.

SANA further said the toll was expected to rise because a number of those wounded in the bombing were in serious condition and the ongoing assault on the town made it hard to remove the injured to safety.

It went on to hold Hamas - which has governed the strip since 2007 - responsible for what it described as "hostile activity". The tunnel extended for over a mile, some of it deep into Israeli territory.

Hader, a town just inside Syrian territory, is reportedly being targeted by the Nusra Front, formally known as Jabhat Fateh al-Sham.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometers (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it, a move never recognized by the global community.

The Israel Police said as part of the general police preparation at the Golan Heights, forces were deployed and stationed at major intersections in the north.

"The IDF is ready and prepared to assist the residents of the village, and will prevent the harming or the conquering of the village of Hadher our of deep commitment to the Druze population".

It was reported that the resident of the Druze village in the Golan Heights was treated.

An Israeli man from a Druze area in Israel was lightly wounded by stray fire from across the border amid "intense fighting" in Syria, earlier in the day, the military said.
