Thread: Israel Shells Syria in "Warning"

    Default Israel Shells Syria in "Warning"

    The IDF fired a warning shot at the Syrian military on Sunday, after a Syrian shell landed in the Golan Heights for the second time in recent days.

    Israel has not fired at Syria since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.


    "In the midst of Syrian infighting, a mortar shell fired by the Syrian army struck near an outpost at Tel Hazeka," IDF spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai said. The shell failed to cause injuries or damages.
    "In light of the policy instituted by IDF Chief of Staff, Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, a warning round was fired back into Syria. We don't believe it caused injuries or damages," Mordechai added.
    At the same time, Israel sent a warning message to the UN, saying that any further firing into Israel will result "in a real response," sources added.
    Israel limited its return fire, since its policy is to only fire intensively in response to coming under major Syrian fire. "We didn't continue firing because this was one mortar we were responding to," the source said.
    "We will not accept any firing into our territory," he added. "This was a signal to the Syrians, that we will not be so forgiving of everything that lands in a territory." The source stressed that as of now, Israel and Syria were not a in a conflict situation

    The Syrian government is fighting for their lives right now. I'm not sure what purpose it would serve for them to fire on Israel. Does anyone else smell a rat?

    It's being blamed on Hamas according to Israel. So CNN says......

    They are trying to goad anyone into invading them. It united the Russians under Stalin, it united the Americans under Bush, it united... and my brain has failed. But its classic country unification move, they just need to false flag it properly.

    They didn't fire on Israel they fired on the Golan Heights which is Syrian territory.

    I was just headed out to the internet to look that up. I'm not a big Israel wonk, but IIRC the Golan Heights is recognized as Syrian territory by everybody except Israel, isn't it?

    Good point. Syria has wanted their land back ever since the Israelis stole it, but they've always tried to get it back through negotiations since the '73 war.

    Israel recognises it as Syrian territory but refuses to hand it back. Strategically its vital but it also provides 1/3 of Israel's water which is the most important thing in that region that all the players ignore publicly.

    A ski resort and a winery.



    Mount Hermon

    As Israel's only ski resort, Mount Hermon can get pretty crowded during high season. Located in the Golan Heights bordering Syria, this 6,000-foot mountain boasts 28 miles of ski trails, from bunny slopes to two Olympic-standard ski runs, as well as a ski school and glass-enclosed restaurant. While you're in the area, tour the Golan Heights Winery in the town of Katzrin and sample its award-winning labels, Yarden, Gamla, and Golan. The winery is owned by eight kibbutzim and moshavim (collective farms) whose vineyards stretch from the foot of Mount Hermon to the Sea of Galilee.
