IDF radio reports that a mortar launched from Syria landed inside Israel close to 9am.

The mortar landed in an orchard alongside the border on the Golan Heights, and came from the fighting between Assad and Rebel troops.

As a result, the IDF has declared a closed military zone in a wide area surrounding Quneitra, including all agricultural fields and roads in the area until 8am Tuesday morning.

The IDF has also evacuated the Israeli farmers from danger zone to protect them.

  3. Thank you IDF for your efforts to help keep Israeli citizens from Hamas’s harms way!

  4. To Michael Bernstein;
    If you will 'force' yourself to read a bit of the "Koran"…you will be struck by the difficulty to find anything referring to putting together edifices or communities dedicated to peaceful constructive pursuits! You will find much, in fact, incredible volumes of "verbiage"…ie. words dedicated to destruction and killing…killing of any person not already a muslim or willing to immediately convert…and some leniency given if you pay a hefty fine regularly!!! Destroy any buildings not dedicated to muslim culture/religion, and especially destroy any house of worship if it is not muslim. Install a worldwide Caliphate…ie.. government with Shariah, the supreme muslim law as law of the land….why would anyone want to "negotiate" with that thinking…especially if the Islamic group you are supposed to negotiate with has devoted themselves to your DESTRUCTION…Wake u p!!!
