A mortar shell fired from Syria exploded in the Alonei Habashan area of Israel’s Golan Heights tonight. No injuries or damage were reported in the latest spillover of the Syrian civil war into Israel.
In recent days, there has been intense fighting on the Syrian side of the Israeli border with the country. 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, four terrorists trying to plant an explosive device near the border fence in the Golan Heights were killed by Israel Defense Forces fire.
