Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor told the U.N. Security Council, “ I urge you to condemn the incident and the Syrian government’s grave violation of the Separation of Forces Agreement” in which Syrian mortar hit the Golan Heights on Tuesday, Tisha B’Av. “The fasting and prayers of thousands of Israelis commemorating the Jewish holiday of Tisha B’Av were interrupted by a barrage of mortar shells fired from Syria,” Prosor stated.

“At the same time, and in a grave violation of the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement, tanks, trucks and armored vehicles belonging to Syrian government forces entered the buffer zone.

“Israel is an island of stability in a region steeped in violence, blood and destruction, and we expect that the Security Council will do everything in its power in order to maintain stability,” Prosor  added.
