Israel Fires On Syria

From the Jerusalem Post:

The IDF fired a warning shot at the Syrian military on Sunday, after a Syrian shell exploded 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, but was one of a series of shells that landed in Israeli territory.

“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.

  1. Israel will have to stand on their own for the next four years, sadly. This administration does not support them as it should.

            • I mean that people are of the mindset that Israel is our enemy and Iran is our buddy. Did you watch those college kids on that video that B. posted? Well, I think it was B. I can’t remember. Are you going to force me to scroll now?

              • Oh, right, I remember. Some wanted to throw Israel under the bus, others thought that O would be the great peace maker. Any predictions on how O will handle Iran in the coming year? I just read a lib article saying that the sanctions have been taking a ‘brutal’ toll and that O should be able to steer the Iranian nuke program to safety, but that now is the time, and big bad O is prepared to bring the pain if he has to.

  2. Ah, let’s see. A syrian shell landed in the Golan heights. Which despite Israels claim to the contrary- and their occupation, is recognized by the international community as Syrian sovreign territory.

    And of course there is no indication that the syrian shell had anything to do with Israel and was not just part of Syrias raging civil war where pro-government forces have been fighting with rebels who are in the Golan.

    • Well, that’s real logical. Hmmm….I think this is my land — even though they’ve been living there– so I think the best thing to do is bomb the shit outta innocent lives. Yes, it makes perfect radical Muslim sense.
