Three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized buffer zone in the Golan Heights Saturday, encroaching on the decades-old ceasefire agreement between Jerusalem and Damascus.

The tanks, belonging to Syrian President Bashar Assad's army, entered Bit Ajam, close to an IDF post.



Israel lodged a complaint with the United Nations over the ceasefire agreement violation, though the defense establishment assessed that the tank movement was related to Syria's internal conflict and not intended as an act of aggression against the Jewish state.

The IDF raised its alert level in the Golan Heights region.
