Palestinian Authority claims Israel backs al-Qaeda in Syria

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

Syrian news agency SANA reported that the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Nusra Front was responsible for the attack, adding that army units and pro-government militias clashed with those responsible following the incident.

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

SANA, the official Syrian news agency, said the incident involved a Jabhat al-Nusra suicide bomber who detonated a vehicle bomb near houses on the outskirts of Hader, leaving nine people dead and 23 injured.

"The IDF is ready and prepared to assist the residents of the village, and will prevent the harming or the conquering of the village of Hadher our of deep commitment to the Druze population".

Israel's military said on Friday it was ready to protect a frontier village in Syria held by the Syrian government, where Damascus said jihadist rebels exploded a vehicle killing at least nine people.

The PA's foreign ministry charged in a statement on Saturday that Israel's announcement that it would defend the village of Hader was actually a forced reversal of Israeli policy.

"This behaviour is a serious violation of the law", the Israeli army said, urging all civilians to refrain from crossing the fence or even approaching it.

Israel is widely believed to be harboring and supporting anti-Syrian government militants who have been wreaking havoc along Syria's Southwestern border regions.

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.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it, a move never recognised by the global community. Syria says the raids aim to help Takfiri militants fighting against government forces.

Hezbollah has not commented on the Israeli military's claim.

The rocket attacks are also believed to be coordinated, with Israel always holding the Syrian government accountable and using them as a pretext to respond even though the projectiles always land in open fields.

The Wall Street Journal said in the same month that Israel had been providing Takfiri terrorists in Syria's Golan Heights with a steady flow of funds and medical supplies.
