Late Monday afternoon, Israel time, a mortar shell hit an open area in the vicinity of an IDF post in the central Golan Heights, as part of the internal conflict inside Syria, causing no damage or injuries.

In response, IDF soldiers fired tank shells towards the source of the fire, confirming direct hits.

The IDF has filed a complaint with the UN forces operating in the area, stating that fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and shall be responded to with severity.

Yesterday, a mortar shell hit an IDF post in the Golan Heights adjacent to the Israel-Syria border, also as part of the internal conflict inside Syria. In response, IDF soldiers fired warning shots towards Syrian areas, as well as an advanced Tamuz rocket, and the IDF filed a complaint through the UN forces operating in the area, stating that fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and shall be responded to with severity.

Last Sunday (November 4), Chief of the General Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz toured the Golan Heights together with commanders of the Gaash Formation, which is responsible for protecting the region around the Syrian border. “This is a Syrian issue that could become our issue,” the Chief of Staff then said of the ongoing fighting in Syria, instructing forces in the field to remain alert in protecting the Golan Heights and preventing violence from spilling across the border.

    The IDF responses–are much too little!

  2. This feels like death by a thousand cuts – you can just see this all lining up in slow motion until Israel finally has enough and there will be a serious confrontation with Syria and Gaza.

  3. Conservative Christians In The USA Stand With Israel, Jews & IDF. We Support US & Israeli Military Using Any Force Needed To Combat & Defeat Radical Islam.

    Do as U.S. General John J. Pershing, aka “Black Jack”, did against the Islamic terrorists in the southern Philippine Island of Mindanao after the Spanish-American War at the turn of the last century (1911). He threatened the mullahs with …”splattering of pigs-blood on your houses and families and any who attack us and are killed will be buried in pig-skins.” He also soaked the tips of his bullets in pig fat (lard). After he killed a few of them and buried them in pig skins, the mullahs made Pershing an Honorary Chieftain with little if any more trouble in his area of command.

    Another account from the 1938 book, Jungle Patrol, explains a similar successful account like Pershing. It was Colonel Alexander Rodgers of the 6th Cavalry who accomplished quiet in the area by taking advantage of religious prejudice what the bayonets and Krags had been unable to accomplish. Rodgers inaugurated a system of burying all dead juramentados in a common grave with the carcasses of slaughtered pigs. This worked and so other officers took up the principle, adding new refinements to make it additionally unattractive to the Moros. In some sections the Moro juramentado was beheaded after death and the head sewn inside the carcass of a pig. And so the rite of running juramentado ceased to be in Sulu.

    Shlomo Riskin, Chief Rabbi of Efrat, defended the practice: “If burial in pigskin will deter suicide bombers, then it is incumbent on us to do this. We should do anything to save life.”.

    When questioned if it really happened, the Rabbi said: “I truly believe it happened. The pigskin was supplied by someone with a good sense of initiative. The body was lying by the supermarket for three to four hours. There was plenty of time.” Pork is considered an abomination by observant Jews, but it is produced at one Kibbutz.

    Jews at Gush Katif, in the Gaza Strip, were the first to claim to have defiled the body of a dead Palestinian with “pigskin and lard”. Residents of Efrat said that they did the same to a Palestinian building worker who tried to blow up their supermarket but was shot dead before most of the explosives detonated.

    Again, the IDF should tip their munitions in lard and make it known to the other side what is coming their way if they don’t stop firing at us.
