Israel Defense Forces Kill 4 ISIS-Linked Attackers in Golan Heights | The New York Times

The Israeli military said it killed four militants linked to the Islamic State on Sunday after they attacked Israeli forces in the Golan Heights.

The confrontation appeared to be the first of its kind between Israel and Islamic State-affiliated forces based in Syria. It was not immediately clear if the militants’ attack had been spontaneous or if it signaled a possible change of policy by extremist groups.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a spokesman for the Israeli military, described the exchange as “unique” in magnitude.
