Israeli Hit by Syrian Gunfire; IDF Prepares to Enter Bloody Civil War

Israeli army promises to help Syrian Druze village

Israeli Druze citizens who had gathered near the border with Syria broke through the fence with the intention of joining the fighting in the Syrian Druze village of Khader.

Hader has been aligned with the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad (the Druze are typically loyal to whichever party is in power), making it a target for all of the various rebel and Islamist groups participating in Syria's civil war.

Israeli officials said they were looking at the possibility of assisting Hader, whose residents have Druze kinsman lobbying on their behalf in Israel.

Syrian rebel factions launched an attack on Syrian government territory in Quneitra on Friday, with the aim of connecting two insurgent-held areas.

The Israeli army said on Friday that it will not allow jihadists to overrun a government-held Druze village inside Syria, in an unprecedented intervention into the country's years-long civil war.

The IDF statement was issued in the wake of heavy fighting in Khader on Friday morning.

In Syria, nine people were killed and twenty three others injured in a suicide auto bomb explosion at Hader village at the Golan Heights, today.

Syrian state media have accused Israel of engineering the jihadist attack on the town.

Around 10 of them entered the buffer zone, the Israeli army said, before forces caught them and returned them to the Israeli-occupied side.

Israel's Druze, some of whom have reached the senior echelons of the Israeli military and government, have been calling for help on behalf of their brethren in Syria, both at home and overseas.

However, according to foreign reports, Israel has financially supported other southern Syria opposition groups in order to ensure forces friendly to Israel control the Syrian side of the northern Golan border.

Speaking from London, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "we safeguard our borders".

Israel has a policy of providing medical assistance to Syrians wounded in the conflict, transporting some into its territory for treatment.

The Jewish state has officially maintained a posture of non-intervention in the war in Syria that erupted after anti- government protests in March 2011. Such "red lines" include the violation of Israeli sovereignty through deliberate or accidental attacks, Iranian-backed militias taking positions on the Golan border, and attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah.
