Israeli teen killed by mortar fire from Syria

(JNS.org) The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) launched air strikes on military positions inside Syria over the weekend, in response to a cross-border attack that left one Israeli teenager dead. In all, Israel said it struck nine military targets, killing 10 Syrian soldiers. The strike was instigated by the death of a 13-year-old Israeli boy who was killed Sunday, June 22 in the Golan Heights by an explosion resulting from a mortar shell fired from Syria. Three others were injured after the detonation of the mortar, which was fired from near the Quneitra crossing between Syria and the Israeli-controlled portion of the Golan Heights. The teenage victim, identified as Mohammed Karaka, was killed while riding in a vehicle with his father, an Israeli Defense Ministry employee working to bolster Israel’s border fence with Syria.
