According to CNN Breaking News:-
Several rockets land in Israel's Hermon area on the Syrian border early Wednesday, Israeli military says.
No more info yet on twitter or other mainstream places
I will update this thread when more info comes available.
I have just found this:-
2 mortar shells fired at Mount Hermon; site partially closed
Explosions heard at Mount Hermon: At least 2 mortar shells land in Israeli territory; no injuries or damage were reported; IDF closes site to
visitors, lodges complaint with Golan-based UN peacekeeping force.
At least two mortar shells were fired into Israeli territory in the Mount Hermon region in the Golan Heights.
According to assessments they were stray mortars mistakenly fired at Israel as part of the Syrian conflict between rebels and government forces. No
injuries or damage were reported.
In wake of the incident, the IDF has decided to close off the upper part of the Mount Hermon site to visitors and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz held
an emergency assessment meeting with senior IDF officials. In the meanwhile, Israel has lodged a complaint with the Golan-based UN peacekeeping force.
I dont know if they are the same incident or different. 2 Shells are not several rockets. If they are two seperate incidents then this could be more
than a mistake.
(CNN) -- Several rockets landed early Wednesday in the Hermon area of the northern Israeli-held Golan Heights, on Israel's border with Syria, the
Israeli military said.
"Initial reports indicate that the rockets are a result of (the) domestic situation in Syria," a spokeswoman for the Israel Defense Forces said.
"As a result the Hermon side of the mountain will be temporarily closed for visitors."
In addition to the above I also found this whilst looking on twitter:-
Iran: We convinced Assad to assist those who want to attack Israel
Al-Hayat quoted a Teheran official as claiming that the Iranian regime succeeded in convincing Syrian president Bashar Assad to grant Hezbollah all
the means it has at its disposal if the latter succeeds in organizing a force, and agrees to open an additional front against Israel in the Golan
The officials added that Iran also convinced Damascus to allow all of those wishing to fight Israel in the Golan region to do so, in an attempt to
turn the area into the new frontline of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. (Roi Kais)
