Three Syrian tanks have entered the demilitarized zone in Syria’s Israeli-occupied territory of Golan Heights, angering the Tel Aviv regime.

An Israeli military spokesperson said on Saturday that the regime “filed a complaint with the UN (peacekeeping) force in the area.”

The spokesperson did not provide further details about the mission of the Syrian tanks. However, Israeli media reported that the combat vehicles entered the Syrian village of Beer Ajam, near an Israeli military checkpoint, to confront the insurgents fighting against the Syrian government.

The report comes amid ongoing clashes between the Syrian army and the foreign-sponsored insurgents in Syria.

The Israeli regime seized the Syrian territory on the strategically important Golan Heights in the 1967 war. Tel Aviv annexed the territory on December 14, 1981 -- a move which has been met with international condemnation.
