RT.com: Israel fires at two Syrian mortar batteries


The Israeli military has fired tanks shells into Syria for the second consecutive day after a stray mortar round landed in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights. The IDF fired “towards the source of the fire” and confirmed “direct hits.”

The Israel Defense Force (IDF) tanks fired on two Syrian mortar shell batteries in response to the errant mortar shell that landed near an IDF outpost in Hazeka on Monday. The retaliatory strike comes a day after a similar incident compelled the Israeli military to fire a single Tamuz anti-tank missile into Syria.

An Israeli security source told Haaretz daily the IDF had once again fired a Tamuz anti-tank missile with a range of 25 kilometers in the direction of the Syrian army mortar crew that had launched a shell which overshot the Golan disengagement fence. The IDF reported “direct hits,” though no causalities have been reported.
