Late on Sunday evening, July 13, a mortar launched from Syria landed in Israel, setting off a large fire, but causing no injuries.

The shell landed in the Golan Heights.

Israel responded swiftly, firing three rockets at the site from which the mortar was launched.

This shelling was believed to be deliberately fired towards Israel, and was not an errant shot from the civil war taking place in Syria.

Another attack from Syria in June caused the death of an Arab Israeli teenager.

  43. David Cohen says:

    1. Israel does not deliberately bomb civilians, it actually send warnings. Hamas deliberately locates weapons caches, launch sites and other terrorist activities adjacent to civilians and tells them to not leave when warned.
    2. Israel is a legitimate Country approved in 1948 in the U.N. Partition plan that created Israel and Jordan and with continuous Jewish occupancy for the past 3200 years.
    3. Israel has always been open to sincere negotiations to achieve Peace. For example, returning the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt in 1978. There have been no hostilities with Egypt since then.
