News the HP Doesn't Cover: Mortars Land In Israel

The HP doesn't cover when rockets and mortars fly from Gaza, how can we expect them to cover the news of mortars from Syria? The problem is really our expectations.

At least two mortar shells were fired Saturday into Israeli territory in the Mount Hermon region in the Golan Heights.

According to assessments they were stray mortars mistakenly fired at Israel as part of the Syrian conflict between rebels and government forces. No injuries or damage were reported. 
In wake of the incident, the IDF has decided to close off the upper part of the Mount Hermon site to visitors and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz held an emergency assessment meeting with senior IDF officials. In the meanwhile, Israel has lodged a complaint with the Golan-based UN peacekeeping force.
