Israel says Assad back in charge, Syrian front likely to be quieter

The fighters had been detected by Israeli surveillance well before they crossed into the region

Gen. Ronen Manelis said Israeli troops attacked the militants as they approached the Israeli-Syria border.

The military described it as a "triangle area" near the borders of Israel, Syria and Jordan in the occupied Golan Heights. "Following searches this morning, explosive belts and an AK-47 assault rifle were found in the area", the army said in a statement.

Israel has sought to remain out of direct involvement in Syria's civil war, but it admits carrying out dozens of air strikes there to stop what it says are deliveries of advanced weaponry to its Lebanese enemy Hezbollah.

Russian media said that Russia would soon deploy forces along the border to keep the warring factions from provoking Israel.

In Moscow, Rudskoy said Russia's military police would establish eight of its own monitoring posts at the edge of the United Nations disengagement zone at the frontier.

World champion Lewis Hamilton rules in Hungary to stretch his lead
Team radio told Bottas to give the position back to Ricciardo, who did well to finish fourth after starting from 12th in the grid. The result meant Hamilton strengthened his grip on the lead of the championship, with his advantage over Vettel now at 24 points.

Israel's military spokesman, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, said in a telephone briefing with reporters that he could not immediately comment on the deployment on the Syrian side of the border.

Seven Islamic State terrorists were killed in an Israeli attack overnight Wednesday in Syria's Golan Heights.

The incident took place in the southern part of the Golan Heights, where a demilitarized buffer zone was established between Israel and Syria.

Because of the recent Syrian government offensive, there are now Islamic State forces "scattered in the area", Conricus said.

Last week, Israeli military forces targeted a Syrian Air Force fighter jet over the Golan Heights as it was flying in Syria's airspace and conducting a series of airstrikes against the positions of foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants in the occupied territories.

Army units had used "all types of weapons" to shell a group of militants who had come close to its side of the Yarmouk Valley in clashes that lasted almost 24 hours from Tuesday to Wednesday afternoon, an army source said.

Israeli troops were on "high alert and readiness" following the strike.

"It did not seem as if they were fleeing, seeking refuge", Conricus said.

Ali Hammoud, in an interview with Reuters on Monday, said the Syrian government had yet to receive any request from Jordan to reopen the crossing.
