Mortar Shell Fired From Syria Explodes in Israel’s Golan Heights
JNS.org – A mortar shell fired from Syria exploded in the Alonei Habashan area of Israel’s Golan Heights on Sunday night.
No injuries or damage were reported in the incident, the latest in the spillover of violence from the Syrian civil war into Israel.
In recent days, there has been intense fighting in the Syrian Golan Heights region, near the border with Israel. Security officials were investigating whether Sunday’s mortar fire was accidental spillover from that fighting.
Three weeks ago, two mortar shells were accidentally fired from Syria into Israel, exploding in the groves of Kibbutz Ein Zivan.
That same week, Israeli soldiers killed four terrorists as they attempted to plant an explosive device near the border fence in the Golan Heights.
