Syrian rocket hits Golan Heights and explodes – again

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 site belonging 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.

On both Sunday and Monday, rockets were fired from Syria and exploded in the Golan. The IDF attacked two Syrian artillery pieces and an ammunition truck.

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.
