Syrian tanks entered the Golan Height’s demilitarized zone Saturday afternoon, just a few miles from IDF military positions along the Israeli border.
Israel filed a complaint with the United Nations as a result of the breach, and heightened its alert level in the area, ABC News reported.
However, ABC News speculated that “the relatively low-key response suggested Israel did not see the armor as an immediate threat.”
On the other hand, according to GlobalPost’s Israel-Palestine correspondent Noga Tarnopolsky, the fact that the Syrian army is using tanks in remote, rural areas is much noted by Israel.
