Mortar shell lands in Israel from Syria

 

(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) For the second consecutive day, a mortar shell fired from Syria exploded within Israeli territory in the Golan Heights on Tuesday, May 7. Army Radio reported that the shell struck a minefield in the Tel Fares area around 8 a.m. No injuries or damage were reported. Israeli defense officials believe the shell was not fired at an Israeli target, but rather spilled over from the ongoing civil war in Syria. On Monday, May 6 two mortar shells fired from Syria exploded in the southern Golan Heights. Israel has filed a complaint with the United Nations peacekeeping force in the region. Monday’s incident was also classified as unintentional spillover from Syria. Tensions along the border between Israel and Syria have mounted recently, after Israel reportedly bombed arms shipments in Damascus twice in recent days.
