A report in a Syrian newspaper indicated a possible attempt by the regime in Damascus to downplay the fact that Israel fired a missile towards the country for the first time since 1973.

Al-Watan, a paper associated with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government, released a series of testimonies made by residents of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, who claim that they never heard a missile exploding at a post belonging to the Syrian security forces. Several mortar shells were fired from the post on an IDF base days after a mortar hit the Israeli town of Alonei HaBashan.

The report briefly mentioned that a missile “was said to have been fired” as a warning.

The newspaper further featured a caricature of an Israeli soldier saying: “We reserve the right to retaliate at the appropriate time and place.” A caption mentioned mortar shells hitting “areas in the occupied Golan.”
