Syrian missile fragment lands in family's yard
A large piece from one of the SA-5 surface-to-air missiles launched at the Israeli F-16 Saturday by Syrian forces crashes in the backyard of a family in northern Israel.

A piece of a surface-to-air SA-5 missile launched from Syria at IAF jets Saturday morning fell in the yard of a family home in the Jezreel Valley.

 

 

Only slight damage was caused to the yard.

Noam, a resident of the home, was witness to the incident: “We awoke at around 5:00 am because my son and I planned to go on a bicycle trip.

 

"I loaded our equipment in the car and shortly after 5:30 I heard a whistle and looked up to see a twirling smoke trail and then I saw a large object fall from the sky. It was slow enough for me to make out and it made half a turn before landing. There was a loud noise but no explosion.”

Noam contacted the police and after determining that there were no injuries, he continued to his bike trip. The IDF said that the projectile would be moved by evening.

Events in the north became quite tense after an IAF Apache helicopter downed an Iranian drone that had infiltrated Israeli airspace Saturday morning.

 

Israel launched a series of raids against Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria and Syrian anti aircraft fire brought down one IAF F-16. The pilots bailed out and one was seriously injured.
