Three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized zone on the Golan Heights on Saturday afternoon.
The IDF was waiting for the United Nations' Disengagement Force on the Golan Heights to oversee the withdrawal of the tanks. Related:
The tanks, which were involved in heavy clashes with Syrian rebels, encroached the decades-old ceasefire agreement between Jerusalem and Damascus.
The vehicles entered Beit Ajam, which is close to an IDF position on the border. Earlier on Saturday, local residents near the Syrian border reported hearing heavy exchanges of fire between the Syrian army and rebels.
Israel lodged a complaint with the United Nations over the ceasefire violation. The defense establishment has concluded, however, that the tank movement is linked to the Syrian civil war and not intended as an act of aggression against Israel.
Nevertheless, the IDF raised its alert level in the Golan Heights region.

Looks like it got pretty hot on the Syrian side and they needed a sanctuary to cool off

Yeah, that’ll work.
Israel didn’t want to destroy Syrian tanks. Israel may view Assad as a son of a bitch, but the one they can live with. If the radical Sunni Muslims take over Syria, there’ll be major problems for Israel in the near future.
They mat as well have lodged that complaint with a Holiday Inn, A real Lodge.
