Damascus is yet to comment on the situation. The two countries have been in a state of war for decades with a peace treaty never signed.

According an IDF source cited by RIA Novosti, Israeli troops have opened warning fire toward Syrian government forces. However, no official confirmation by the Israeli Defense Forces has followed so far.

The move, which is yet to be commented on by the Syrian government, was explained by Tel Aviv’s opposition to Damascus erecting a military post in a demilitarized zone on the border it considers to be a violation of agreements. In addition to a tank firing what was described as a “warning shot,” Israel has also sent a complaint to the UN Disengagement Observer Force Zone (UNDOF).

“The Syrian armed forces have violated the ceasefire agreement of 1974, carrying out construction work […] in the northern part of the demilitarized zone between Syria and Israel. The agreement prohibits the entry of heavy construction machinery or military vehicles there,” the IDF source said.

There has been no immediate information about the losses from the Syrian side.
