ISRAEL STRIKES BACK AFTER SYRIA SHELLING
 
Israel Israel’s army said it had fired on and hit a Syrian military vehicle on Monday, November 12, after a Syrian mortar shell landed in the Golan Heights—the first time in four decades the Jewish state struck a Syrian target from the strategic plateau and the first time Israel has been drawn militarily into its neighbor’s war, The Wall Street Journal reported. Israel and Syria have respected an internationally patrolled demilitarized zone after the end of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, making the frontier one of Middle East’s quietest. But fire from Syrian battles have been increasingly entering the Golan Heights recently, raising the specter that the area could again become a volatile border zone. The latest exchange also opens the possibility of a troubling new flash point in a war that is already spilling over Syria’s other borders.

Gaza Israel will not hesitate to launch a major IDF operation against Gaza-based terrorist factions if necessary, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned on Sunday, November 11 – after some 100 rockets hit southern Israel in 24 hours, The Jerusalem Post reported. Rockets wounded three people in Sderot during a barrage fired to coincide with the morning commute to work. Later in the day, a Palestinian rocket scored a direct hit on a factory in Sderot. In the evening, two homes, one in Sderot and another in the Eshkol region, also sustained direct rocket strikes, causing damages, but no injuries. The latest round of violence began when Islamic Jihad terrorists fired an anti-tank missile at an IDF Jeep carrying out a routine patrol on the Israeli side of the border on Saturday, striking the vehicle directly and wounding four soldiers.

IRAN LAUNCHES AIR DRILL AS ‘WARNING’ TO ENEMIES
 
IranIran on Monday, November 12 launched an air defense exercise a general said was aimed at optimizing its deterrent capabilities as well as sending a “strong warning” to those threatening it with military strikes, Agence France Presse reported. The drill, originally scheduled for early October but postponed without an official explanation, comes against a backdrop of growing tension in Gulf, but appears unconnected to an incident last week when two Iranian fighter jets fired on an unarmed U.S. drone. Some 8,000 troops drawn from the ranks of the Revolutionary Guards, the army and the Basij militia are participating in the drill, which will span four days and cover an area stretching 328,000 square miles in Iran’s eastern regions, according to media reports. Various missile and artillery systems as well as fighter jets and bombers will be used in the exercise, they said.

Following talks with Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi in Cairo, “it has been agreed that the request will be presented on November 29,” Abbas told reporters on Monday, calling for support from Arab states. President Barack Obama told Abbas in a telephone conversation on Sunday that his administration opposes the Palestinian U.N. initiative, and Israeli officials have threatened punitive measures if the Palestinians go ahead with the bid.
