A terrorist missile landed in southern Israel on Thursday morning, but it came from an unexpected source. The Jerusalem Post reports that instead of the normal rockets launched from nearby in Hamas-ruled Gaza, this projectile originated in Syria, far to the north:

Israel and Syria exchanged missile attacks early Thursday morning after Damascus launched an advanced surface-to-air missile that landed all the way in the Negev Desert.

Alarms sounded in Abu Qrenat near Dimona in the South. Syria fired the missile in response to what it claims was an Israeli Air Force bombing near Damascus. Israel frequently strikes Syria to prevent Iranian entrenchment in the country as well as weapons shipments to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Reports from across the country, including central Israel and Jerusalem, spoke of “loud explosions” that “shook the houses.”
