Errant Fire from Syria Lands in Golan for 2nd Day

A UN officer monitors the Israel Syria border in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights

The Israeli military said Sunday that it had attacked a series of targets belonging to the Syrian regime after projectiles from the neighboring country landed in its territory for the second day in a row.

Meanwhile, farmers and civilians were ordered to stay away from the Valley of Tears, New Quneitra, and open areas.

Israeli aircraft targeted three positions from which the projectiles were fired, the IDF said.

The channel also quoted Syrian army sources as claiming that the Israeli attack was coordinated with a strike by the jihadist al-Nusra front, one of the rebel groups fighting the government near the Golan Heights.

On Saturday, the IDF destroyed two Syrian Army tanks and a machine gun position in response to approximately 10 mortar rounds that landed in the northern Golan Heights.




The Syrian military source said Israeli rocket fire had hit a residential building, causing a number of deaths and damage. Two people were reportedly killed in Quneitra in the attack, Syrian media reported.

The Syrian regime is engaged in fighting against various disparate rebel groups in the region, including Islamic State and other Islamist fighters.

"We will respond strongly, resolutely and with levelheadedness to any such case", he said.

Israel annexed a large part of the Golan Heights after capturing it from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed the territory in a move not recognized by the global community.

"Due to the unacceptable violation of Israeli sovereignty", Israel has protested to the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) which maintains the 1974 ceasefire between Israel and Syria, a military spokesperson said.
