Explosions Heard on Israeli-Syria Border, Israeli Emergency Sirens Activated


Emergency sirens sounded in the Golan Heights Wednesday night, as conflict broke out across the Israel-Syria border between Israeli forces and, the Israeli military says, Iranian forces in Syria.  


Israeli residents along the country’s tense border with Syria have been urged to enter shelters.

Social media users report that Israeli tanks have fired at positions in Syria, Israeli air sorties have been initiated, and that Syrian artillery is shelling Israeli targets.


Tensions in the area spurred the Israel Defense Forces to send military vehicles, troops, and missile interceptors to Golan Heights earlier in the day. Israel had been on high alert already after the country claimed to detect unusual “Iranian activity” in Syria.


“Launches of about 20 missiles were registered at around midnight toward the frontier positions in the Golan Heights by Iran’s al-Quds forces,” an Israeli army spokesman told reporters. “Several bases were targeted,” the spokesman said, some rockets were intercepted, and Israel has “responded.” No injuries have been reported.

The Israeli military said it viewed the attack “with great severity.”

  1. Off Hal site. “ Isral fired multiple tank shells and dropped bombs from planes on targets in Hadar, Syria and when the people they were attacking (Iranians0 FIRED BACK, the Israelis are telling their people “We’ve been attacked by Iranian forces.”

  2. The crap is flying and the fan is picking up speed. Hope Russia smacks the crap out of those Israhell azzho’s. Get this dumb shit over with.

  3. Israel captured the Golan Heights in the 1973 Yom Kippur war….October 6 – 25th. from Syria which had been using the mountainous region to fire down artillery into Israel. It puts Israeli territory within 20 miles of Damascus. That advantageous area to fire DOWN into Israel needed to be resolved….but Israel still does just keep expanding and expanding since 1948.
