RNA - The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted Amar al-Assad, a Syrian MP, as saying that Israel is seeking to preserve terrorist groups in Southern Syria after creating them, deploying them at border and providing financial and military supports to them.
The report said implementation of the peace agreement in Southern Syria and disarming of the militants have worried Tel Aviv, specially now that most of the country's lands have been captured by the Damascus forces.
Jamal al-Za'abi, another MP, told Sputnik that Israel is trying to preserve terrorists in Southern Syria and Tel Aviv forces' attacks on Syria's territory are aimed at supporting terrorists and sabotaging the peace process.
Another Arabic-language media outlet reported earlier today that the Israeli troops targeted a position of the Syrian Army troops in the Southwestern province of Quneitra to assist Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists that have suffered a heavy defeat in battle with the government forces.
Al-Mayadeen news network reported that the Israeli troops opened heavy fire at one of the positons of Tahrir al-Sham in Khan Arnaba region in Northern Quneitra after the government forces repelled a heavy offensive of Tahrir al-Sham in the region.
Al-Mayadeen further said that the Israeli attack did not leave any human casualties.
It went on to say that the terrorist groups in Quneitra had attacked the army stronghold in al-Ba'ath, Jaba and Tal Koroum regions before the Israeli troops launched their attack.
