Israeli Cabinet ministers Tuesday accused forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad of being behind a weekend cross-border attack that killed an Arab Israeli teenager.The attack prompted Israel to hit back with tank fire and airstrikes, which Syria said killed four of its soldiers, in the most serious cross-border hostility between the two sides for months.The Israeli army said it was a deliberate attack on Israel, but was initially uncertain as to whether regime or opposition forces were behind it.Israel responded immediately with tank fire and later airstrikes targeting Syrian military headquarters and positions.Syria said the strikes killed four soldiers and wounded nine, and Monday urged the United Nations to condemn Israel's "flagrant violation" of its territory.That bombing marked the most serious escalation along the cease-fire line with Syria since the 1973 Middle East War, with Yaalon warning at the time that Damascus would pay a "high price" for helping militants bent on harming Israel.
