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

The auto bomb hit the outskirts of the village of Hader, which lies near the disengagement line that divides the Syrian-controlled part of the Golan from the area occupied by Israel, the regime's SANA news agency stated.

Hader is home to the Druze community, a minority religious sect found in Syria, Israel, the occupied Palestinian territories and Lebanon.

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.

"A suicide bomber from Al-Nusra Front detonated a vehicle bomb in the midst of the homes of citizens on the outskirts of Hader, killing nine people and injuring at least 23", the agency said.

Druze residents tried to cross into Syria, but were held back by Israeli soldiers, Israel's military said on Twitter.

Later on, the militants also carried out an attack on units of the army and pro-government militants in the area.

Al-Nusra Front is a now-changed name for a jihadist group that was formerly Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria and is now known as the Fateh al-Sham Front.

Salman Fakherldeen, a founder of the al-Marsad Arab Human Rights Centre in the Golan Heights, told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that some additional IDF troops arrived in the town overnight between Thursday and Friday, but said there has been a noticeable increase in the army's presence in town in recent hours.

The fighting prompted concern from Druze residents of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, and a statement from the Israeli army, which pledged to "prevent Hader from being harmed or occupied".

The Syrian army and Kurdish-led forces backed by the US are now racing to take the rest of the oil-rich eastern province. Our borders in the south, our borders in the north.
