Syrian ‘spillover’ rocket hits Golan Heights – again
Syrian rocket explodes in Golan Heights.
A rocket fired from Syria exploded on Friday afternoon in the northern Golan Heights.
No one was injured and no damage was caused.
According to the IDF, the rocket was probably spillover from the Syrian civil war.
“Moments ago, an errant projectile from internal fighting in Syria hit an open area in the Northern Golan Heights,” an IDF spokesperson said.
On Wednesday, the IDF attacked a mortar sitebelonging to the Syrian regime, in retaliation for a Syrian rocket which struck an open area in the northern Golan. No one was injured and no damage was caused.
Ten rockets fell in Israeli territory on Saturday, causing the IDF to retaliate by destroying two tanks belonging to the Syrian Defense Forces.
Meanwhile the UN Security Council on Thursday called on Syrian troops to withdraw from the buffer zone with Israel.
