Golan Heights and South/West Syria 0
21 October 2020

Syrian state media reported that an Israeli strike had targeted “a school in Quneitra… causing only material damage”; other reports suggested that the facility was “a base for pro-Iran militias”. Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz subsequently remarked that “I won’t go into who fired what... We won’t allow terrorist operatives from Hizbollah or Iran to set up on the Golan Heights border and we will do what is necessary to drive them out of there”.
