The escalations get higher one day after another. Sooner than later, there will be an all-out war. This was likely dry run to test Israel’s reaction. It’s unknown how many of these “mishaps” will be tolerated, but we will know when as the entire middle east will go up in flames with an all-out war on Israel.
TEL AVIV — A top Syrian government official speaking to Klein Online denied that a rocket launched from Syria that landed in northern Israeli territory today was misplaced Syrian army firing, as has been widely reported.
The official further claimed that mortars launched from Syria landing in Israel yesterday were unrelated to any fighting between the rebels and the Syrian army.
The official refused to respond when asked whether he believed yesterday’s mortars or today’s rocket were fired at Israel deliberately either by Syrian forces or by jihad groups.
As Israelis celebrated Yom Kippur today, one rocket landed in an open area of the Golan Heights near the Syrian border while several mortars landed yesterday near Kibbutz Elrom in the northern Golan Heights.
Yesterday’s projectiles were widely reported as mortars apparently fired by the Syrian army at the Syrian village of Jubata Al Khashab in response to rebel activity in the area. Today’s rocket was also blamed on misplaced Syrian fire in Israeli media accounts.
