IDF Soldier Wounded by Syrian Mortar Fire on Golan Heights

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

One IDF soldier was wounded Wednesday when combatants in Syria’s civil war fired across that country’s border with Israel into the Golan Heights.

The soldier sustained shrapnel wounds to the chest and was airlifted to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, where he was immediately taken into surgery to remove the fragments. He is listed in fair to  good condition.

In total, three mortar shells were fired during the attack. No other injuries were reported,  which occurred near the Quneitra crossing, but two cars were damaged in the attack.

In response, IDF officials said Jerusalem holds the Syrian army responsible for maintaining order on the Syrian side of the border, and added that Israeli forces attacked  two Syrian positions in response to the attack.

“Hits were confirmed,” a spokesperson said.

Security sources originally told media the attack was apparently due to overflow from the civil war taking place in Syria but that assessment is being re-examined.

Nevertheless, the IDF has ordered farmers and civilians to stay away from the border with Syria border until further notice. Part of the area has been closed to civilians as a precaution.

There is intense combat taking place between President Bashar al-Assad’s army and opposition forces near the Quneitra crossing, which is very close to Israeli communities in the Golan Heights.

Rocket Attack in Golan Heights

Monday, August 25th, 2014

The eastern Golan Heights sustained rocket fire Monday, apparently from a rocket that was accidentally fired. IDF sources said they do not believe the incident was an intentional on Israel.

No injuries or property damage were reported, but the attack set fire to an open field.

Syrian Fighters Launch Five Rockets at the Golan Heights

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Syrian rebels or forces loyal to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad attacked the Golan Heights with five rockets overnight, hours after at least two rockets from Lebanon exploded in northwestern Israel.

Six people suffered light injuries or shock in the attacks from Lebanon, and no one was injured in the rocket explosions in the Golan Heights, where sirens warned residents of incoming missiles approximately an hour and a half after midnight. All of the rockets exploded in open areas although some of them hit dangerously close to communities.

Israel holds Assad as responsible for attacks from Syria.

The attacks are not necessarily a sign that Israel is facing a second war simultaneous with the Hamas’ “Operation Suicide Wish.” The rocket attacks may have come from Palestinian terrorists or a rogue terrorist cell.

If Assad’s forces, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Hezbollah or any other terrorist organization is trying to lull Israel into a war north of the border, it might be just what the world needs because Israel. If Israel has a need to defend itself from the Syrian army or rebel terrorists, it is the only country with the motivation and capability to teach the same lesson Hamas is learning.

It would be interesting to hear the world’s reaction if the Israel Air Force would wipe out a few hundreds terrorists and dozens of civilians caught in crossfire, considering that Assad’s forces and rebel terrorists have murdered more than 150,000 civilians.

Previous to last night’s rocket attacks from Syria, the Golan Heights has been an occasional target for rocket fire and mortar shells, often drawing IDF artillery fire in return.

The Lebanese army and Hezbollah seem to be more interested in preserving quiet on their side of the border, and the rare rocket attacks from southern Lebanon the past couple of months have been ascribed to rogue Palestinian Authority terrorists.

Meanwhile, Hamas continues to attacks southern Israel. The funeral for four-year-old Daniel Tregerman, killed by a mortar shell Friday night, will be held Sunday.

Gaza rockets also have caused moderate to serious injuries to several people in the south and have hit buildings, including a synagogue in Ashdod, but Hamas overall has failed to cause widespread damage and casualties while it is depleting its resources.

The IDF estimates that Hamas retains approximately 25 percent of its rocket stockpile. That works out to 2,000 rockets and missiles, more or less, enough to cause lethal damage, but so far, the Iron Dine anti-missile system and a lot of help from above have made all but mockery of Hamas attacks, despite the deaths of four civilians.

Report: ‘Hundreds’ of Anti-Aircraft Weapons in Syrian Terrorist Hands

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

A Swiss research group has published a report that explains why the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has banned U.S. flights through Syria air space.

The Switzerland-based Small Arms Survey research organization released a report Tuesday warning that armed terror groups in Syria possess portable anti-aircraft weapons.

The weapons present a risk to aircraft like Malaysia Airlines Flight #17, which was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014, allegedly by pro-Russian separatist rebels.

The Swiss group analyzes the global flow of weapons. It estimated the terrorists have access to several hundred of the anti-aircraft missiles.

Its report focused on launchers and missiles known as “man-portable air defense systems,” or MANPADS, which are dangerous to aircraft upon takeoff and departure, and that fly at lower altitudes.

The weapons could also easily be smuggled to other terrorist organizations, the group noted.

The revelation raises red flags for neighboring Israel, already on alert due to incidents in which Syrian mortar and gunfire have been aimed at its northern region.

The Islamic State — formerly known as ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) — has been operating in Syria for some time. The group has conquered wide swathes of territory both there and in Iraq, including two border crossings between Iraq and Syria, and one border crossing between Iraq and Jordan.

It is alsos not clear which group has possession of the anti-aircraft weaponry.

The report was released just hours after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration had banned all U.S. flights from flying in Syrian air space.

Armed extremists in Syria are “known to be equipped with a variety of anti-aircraft weapons which have the capability to threaten civilian aircraft,” the FAA stated in its notice. In previous alerts, the FAA had warned against flying over Syria but had not issued an outright ban.

Israel is Struck from Syria

Monday, July 14th, 2014

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.

Fire Crew Attacked from Syria

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

Ramat Hagolan – A fire department crew reported that they were fired on Saturday night from Syria, as they were putting out a brush fire near Kibbutz Ein Zivan. No injuries were reported.
