DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A spokesman for a Palestinian militant group in Syria says it has received a nod from President Bashar Assad's regime to attack Israel following the back-to-back Israeli airstrikes over the weekend.

Anwar Raja of the Damascus-based Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command says the regime has given "a green light" for the group "to attack Israeli targets" from the Syrian-controlled part of Golan Heights.

Raja did not elaborate on how the alleged approval was conveyed to PFLP-GC fighters but he stressed that there was no official government note. The Palestinian official spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Most Palestinians in Syria remained on the sidelines of the 2-year-old conflict, but PFLP-GC has fought alongside government troops against the rebels trying to topple Assad.
