Report: IDF attacked Syrian military post near Quneitra - 2022-08-12 18:34:00
Israel reportedly attacked a military site at Quneitra, with fire from tanks, and some claim that Israel fired against shepherds.
This is a clear indication of increasing tension, not only between Israel and Syria, but also between Israel and Russia - which has a military presence in Syria.
In the framework of the USA support of Ukraine, the USA has no choice but to support any country which is going head-to-head against Russian allies and the Russian military.
It is unclear how much coordination there is between the IDF and Russian militaries, when Israel attacks targets in Syria, but it is common sense that IDF coordination would ruin the element of surprise and the Russians would alert the Syrians (and Iranian who are present in Syria), of impending Israeli attacks.
