Israeli army scores 'direct hits' on Syrian target
Israel’s army fired tank shells into Syria on Monday and scored “direct hits” in response to a Syrian mortar shell that struck the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, the Israeli military said in a statement.

JERUSALEM: Israel’s army fired tank shells into Syria on Monday and scored “direct hits” in response to a Syrian mortar shell that struck the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, the Israeli military said in a statement.

Israeli military sources said Syrian mobile artillery was directly hit in the incident.

It was the second time in two days that Israel has responded to what it said was errant Syrian fire. On Sunday the military said it had a fired a “warning shot” across the disengagement line, while on Monday it said it had fired back at “the source”.

Military sources would not say if the mortar bomb was fired by Syrian army forces or by the rebels they are battling in and around the United Nations’ patrolled area of separation.

  1. So sad and heart aching incident for a true well wisher of man kind that is Ahmadi the true Muslims.
    Here I would like to share my poem that I had composed a long time ago. Almost 12 years now.

    Land Of Prophets

    Palestine the land of Abraham
    Land of Ishmael, Isaac and Jesus
    The land of Prophets
    Is injured and bleeding
    weeping and grieving
    The nations of two brothers
    Are blood thirsty of each other’s
    The land that was so sacred
    Has become a target of hatred
    The point that could bring them closer
    Has parted them even farther
    The Holy place that they both take delight
    Has become a cause to fall in a fight
    Alas! What a plight
    who will ever fix this dispute?
    It is You my God absolute!
    O’ Allah they both believe in you
    Help them solve it true
    For half a century this land is suffering
    No day is safe no night comforting
    Many a youths strong and gorgeous
    Lost their lives
    Leaving their children orphaned
    Widowing their wives
    Peace and harmony since long battered
    Business and economy is shattered
    Infants snatched from mother’s lap
    Can There be a greater mishap?
    Can there ever be an end
    to this unacceptable dangerous trend?
    O’ Allah put in their hearts
    Faith, justice and mercy
    so that each other’s rights
    they can see
    So that each other’s rights they can see
    Amen
