    Can't find reports if the missile actually hit something worth in Syria.

    Some warning shot.

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.

    According to the IDF, it was simply a warning shot. Nothing of value was targeted.

    In southern Israel an IDF patrol jeep was hit by an anti-tank missile injuring four soldiers, and dozens of rockets have landed in the Sderot area. Iron Dome intercepted a Grad missile aimed at Ashkelon.

    Israeli elections are in January and the Gaza situation has become unacceptable on all levels. If this continues, I can fairly well guarantee the shit will hit the fan.

    Artillery was aimed at a mortar crew that launched a stray into Israel. No report on whether the crew was hit or not.

    UN and international forces were notified, this firing was more of a warning shot for what happens next time a stray lands in Israel. Seems IDF policy will now be to retaliate every single time something from Syria lands in Israel.

    I take it this is the first time something from Syria landed in Israel since the trouble began for Assad ?

    No, things have been landing in Israel all last week, the IDF leadership decided enough was enough

    What is the prognosis for the situation if it does not improve? Are we looking at a Lebanon v2.0?

    There's so many different groups there, many of them anti Israel, that really it could be anyone.

    Now that you said that i'm leaning more to the parties that are anti-assad, they could use the respite and distraction if Israel bites.

    Are they getting desperate and thinking Assad is winning.
