According to a statement issued by the National Defense Forces, which supports President Bashar al-Assad, three militants were killed and two were wounded in the alleged Israeli strike on the Naba Fawar base near Quneitra.

Pro-regime radio reported that loud explosions were heard at the base at around 5 a.m. Sunday. Following the explosions, it was determined that a cache of ammunition had detonated at the base, leading to confusion regarding whether or not Israel was responsible for the incident.

The IDF has refused to comment on Sunday’s purported strike, which occurred following several confirmed Israeli strikes in Syria in response to projectiles that landed in Israel’s Golan Heights Friday.
