Shells land in Israeli territory

JERUSALEM, March 2 (UPI) — At least three mortar shells landed over the Israeli border from Syria Saturday but no one was injured, Israeli military officials said.

The shells landed about a half-mile (800 meters) inside Israeli territory in the Golan Heights. A military official told Ynewsnet they were likely misfires not intended to target Israel.

“This is misfire and that happens in war,” Golan Regional Council Director Eli Malka said. “There’s no reason to disrupt our routines and at the moment there’s no area in the Golan that people should avoid due to the shooting.”

On Wednesday, a tank shell landed over the border in the same area, Malka said.
