Palestinian group in Syria says fired rockets at Golan

An unknown Palestinian group named the "Halal Abd al-Qader al-Husseini" claimed to have fired on Wednesday rockets at an Israeli observation point in the Golan Heights to mark Nakba Day. The group apparently referred to the mortar shells which landed in the Mount Hermon area for the first time.

 

"We are avenging the blood of our fallen," the group said in a statement. Israel believes the mortars were fired during fighting between Syrian army and rebel forces. (Roi Kais)
