Home front defense minister says mortars in the Golan Heights have no return address Israel can respond to, after three errant shells land in Israeli territory, one lands in Eloni Habashan moshav, doesn’t explode.

Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter said Israel needs “nerves of steel” after three Syrian mortar shells fell inside Israel territory on Thursday.

One of the shells landed between two homes in the Eloni Habashan moshav, but did not explode. No injuries or damage were reported.

Dichter stated: “Israel now requires nerves of steel,” adding that there is nowhere for Israel to respond to, likely a reference to the chaos created by civil war in Syria.

Such events, he continued, “require a level-headed response from Israeli authorities.”
