The Israeli military said it thwarted an infiltration attempt early on Monday, likely killing four “suspected” militants it accused of trying to plant explosives.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said Israeli troops earlier had been in ambush following "irregular” activity in the Golan Heights.

Israeli troops opened fire on the suspected militants, some of whom were armed, after observing them placing the explosives on the ground, Conricus said. The Israeli military released video showing the four fleeing before disappearing in an explosion caused by the strike.

Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in 1967 and later annexed the territory. The US is the only country to have recognised Israel’s annexation.
