The landing was likely the result of a stray shell fired during the fighting in the war-ridden country.

As IDF soldiers work to identify the precise spot in which the mortar fell, it was confirmed that it hit an orchard on the Israeli side of the border. Moreover, while none of the northern residents’ lives were directly impacted, sources in the Golan Heights report that fighting on the Syrian side of the border has begun once more.
