Israel warns Syrians approaching Golan frontier

Israel has pledged a tougher response after Palestinians sent balloons and kites carrying petrol bombs over the border fence

The marchers waved white flags at Israeli soldiers as they walked toward the frontier in the Golan Heights, demanding protection from the relentless airstrikes, before they turned back.

The offensive has triggered the single biggest displacement of the war, with several hundred thousand people uprooted. Israel has refused to grant asylum to citizens of Syria, with which it is technically at war. "There are lots of Arab countries, rich countries".

"We don't want to hurt you".

By capturing the mountains that rise out of western Daraa's lowlands, the Syrian government and its allied militias are securing crucial vantage points for monitoring and striking at rebel forces positioned below, rebel commanders told Syria Direct.

An Israeli officer, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said such processions toward the fence had happened before: "It's their way of signalling they need new supplies".

A series of latest gains in the strategic southwestern province of Quneitra, which borders Jordan, Lebanon and the Golan Heights, have also put foreign-backed militancy under pressure across the region.

Israel has warned Syria and its allies, Iran and Hezbollah, against deploying any forces in the zone, threatening a "harsh response".

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the US-Turkey deal on Syria's northeastern Manbij city with his American counterpart Donald Trump over the phone, Turkey's presidential press office said on Monday.
