News Brief

Syria has apologized for the recent firing of a shoulder-held missile at an IDF plane flying over the Golan Heights, saying it was the unauthorized action of a junior officer acting beyond his standing orders.

The missile, fired from the demilitarized zone on the Heights from where such arms are banned, missed its target. Israel lodged a protest with the UN peace-keeping forces on the Golan Heights. Military observers welcomed the Syrian apology, saying such admissions were rare.
