Explosion in Golan Heights Kibbutz May be Mortar

The Israel Defense Forces are checking reports of an explosion, Thursday evening, at Kibbutz Elrom in the Golan Heights.

It is believed that the explosion was caused by a mortar shell. Shells, apparently fired by the Syrian army in its fight against opponents of President Bashar Al-Assad, landed near the Kibbutz about two months ago.
