The violence from the Syrian civil war is spilling across its borders and affecting Syria’s neighbors in the region. Not surprisingly, a Syrian shell landed in Israel yesterday.
The next thing you know, the area turned into what we who play World of Tanks would call an “arty party.”
The IDF fired a warning shot, in the form of a guided missile, at the Syrian military on Sunday after a Syrian shell exploded in the Golan Heights for the second time in recent days.
“In the midst of Syrian infighting, a mortar shell fired by the Syrian army struck near an [IDF] 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.
Military sources said the IDF fired an advanced Tapuz-type missile at a Syrian artillery cannon.
At the time, Israel sent a warning message to the UN, saying that any further firing into Israel will result “in a real response,” sources added.
Yeah, that “real response” can be summarized by your average American rapper: “Israel gonna make it rain up in here.”
