JERUSALEM (JTA) — A mortar fired from Syria landed in Israeli territory on the Golan Heights.
The mortar, which hit Israel on Tuesday morning, did not cause any injuries or damage.
The explosive is believed to have been fired as part of the more than 3-year-old Syrian civil war. Heavy fighting between troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad and rebel forces has resumed recently near the Quneitra crossing on the border between Israel and Syria.
In August, about 25 mortars fell in Israel, believed to be errant fire from the fighting between Syria’s army and the rebels. Israeli farms near the border with Syria were closed during that time due to fears for farm workers’ safety.
