Syrian missile exploding in Israel not intentional
On Thursday a senior US general said that he believed a Syrian missile exploding in Israel was not intentional, but rather showed a lack of Syrian air defense capability.
“I think it reflects actually incompetence in Syrian air defense … I do not believe it was an intentional attack,” Marine Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, head of US Central Command, said during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing
Earlier in the day, a Syrian anti-aircraft missile landed in southern Israel, setting off air raid sirens near the country’s top secret nuclear reactor. In response, it attacked the missile launcher and air-defense systems in neighboring Syria.
Israeli media later described the Syrian missile as an “errant” projectile, not a deliberate attack deep inside Israel
