The official Syrian news agency today reported an "Israeli attack" in the area of Kuneitra near the border with Israel on the Golan Heights.

Syrian media reported that IDF tanks fired shells at the "ruins of a hospital" in the city of Kuneitra, and that one of the observation posts in the nearby village of Jabta al-Hashab was also damaged.

Jerusalem and the IDF refuse to comment on foreign publications.

The hospital is apparently the same hospital that Israel established for the Syrian residents during the period of good neighborliness. After the IDF withdrew from the area and the "Good Neighbors" administration was abolished, Assad forces took over the buildings.
