A missile landing was identified this afternoon (Thursday) in the Northern Golan Heights as a result of rocket fire spillover from Syria’s internal civil war, landing in a mine field near Israel’s border with Syria. No damage or injuries were reported and IDF forces have begun sweeping the area for debris and shrapnel from the missile.
Yesterday, rocket sirens were sounded on IDF bases in the Northern Golan Heights also as a result of missile launches from the fighting within Syria. However, no missile landing was identified within Israeli territory.
As reported earlier this week by JOL, Israeli Air Force (IAF) fighter jets that had just completed operational activity in Lebanese territory struck a Syrian anti-aircraft battery today (Monday) after it fired an SA-5 Gammon missile towards them. The aircraft dropped four bombs, destroying the battery located about 50 km east of Damascus, near the Duma Syrian Air Force Base. “The battery was destroyed and all of the Israeli Air Force aircraft safely returned to base,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
