IDF head General Benny Gantz warned Israel's Golan forces, saying: "This is a Syrian issue that could become our issue."
Netanyahu said Israel is "closely monitoring what is happening on our border with Syria, and there too we are ready for any development."
Earlier stray mortars also struck Golan. Israel knows they're not intentional. Damascus is still held responsible. In January, Netanyahu faces reelection.
Anything he believes enhances his prospects is possible. He may decide it includes acting tough on Syria. The situation bears watching.
