The attack took place on al-Fawwar camp, near Quneitra, which saw two other fighters injured in the strike from either artillery or the air on Friday night. According to al-Jazeera, Israeli security sources denied that there had been an attack on Syrian positions.

Israel's army declined to comment Sunday on the attack.

Syria's official news agency SANA said Israel had struck a Syrian army position in the province of Quneitra on the Golan plateau, "causing damage".

The source claimed that the strike came after an attempt by terrorists to infiltrate military positions in Quneitra was foiled and the terrorists suffered heavy losses, "which proves that Israel provides direct support to terrorist organizations".

In the past, the Syrian army has confiscated Israeli-made arms and military equipment from extremists fighting the government forces.

Two more Bears showed up on Tuesday night, during which USA officials say an AWACS E-3 surveillance plane was sent to track them. Michael Hayden said that should the situation escalate further, the United States would likely have the upper hand.

Since violence in Syria began in 2011 and devolved into civil war, Israel has been accused of carrying out occasional strikes targeting weapons convoys destined for Lebanon.

The Syrian official media have not confirmed the attack.

Israel occupied the Golan Heights in the 1967 Six-Day War with Syria and annexed the territory in 1981.

Forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah have been clashing with rebels not far from the Golan Heights.

Israel has launched a number of air strikes on Hizballah targets and in "retaliation" when rocket or mortar fire hits areas it controls.
