Israeli warplanes unleashed a series of airstrikes on Syrian military posts early Wednesday, killing one soldier and wounding seven in one of the most serious clashes between the countries in the past four decades.Israel has said it holds President Bashar Assad responsible for any attacks emanating from his country, and accused his forces of allowing the attack to take place.The Israeli military said its warplanes hit a Syrian army training facility, an army headquarters and artillery batteries. Israel had also carried out artillery strikes against Syrian military targets shortly after Tuesday's bombing. The Syrian military said the raids targeted three army posts near the town of Qunaitra, on the edge of the Israeli-occupied part of the Golan. It is bombarding areas around the Krak des Chevaliers to take control of the castle," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.Meanwhile, Syrian troops pressed on with their offensive near the Lebanese border, capturing a village from rebels, whose forces appeared to be collapsing along a key central front, state media and activists said.
