DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) – The Syrian army says Israeli airstrikes against its military posts in the Golan Heights have killed one Syrian soldier and wounded seven.

The army says the raids targeted three posts near the town of Quneitra on the edge of the Israeli-held part of the heights on Wednesday.

The statement also warns Israel against escalating the situation by repeating such “hostile acts.” It says they “endanger the security and stability of the region.”

Earlier in the day, the Israeli military said its warplanes unleashed airstrikes against Syrian army targets in response to a roadside bombing in the Golan Heights that wounded four Israeli soldiers the day before.

Vice President Biden says the U.S. will respond to any aggression against NATO allies.
