Israel reports 'direct hits'
on Syrian artillery target I

First direct clash
between countries in
two years
TEL HAZEKA, Golan Heights
(AP) - Israeli tanks struck a Syr-
ian artillery launcher Monday
after a stray mortar shell flew
into Israel-held territory, the
first direct clash between the
neighbors since the Syrian upris-
ing began nearly two years ago.
The confrontation fueled
new fears that the Syrian civil
war could drag Israel into the
violence, a scenario with grave
consequences for the region. The
fighting has already spilled into
Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
"We are closely monitor-
ing what is happening and will
respond appropriately. We will
not allow our borders to be vio-
lated or our citizens to be fired
upon," Prime Minister Benja-
min Netanyahu said Monday in
a speech to foreign ambassadors.

While officials believe Presi-
dent Bashar Assad hias no inter-
est in picking a fight with Israel,
they fear the embattled Syrian
leader maytry to draw Israel into
the fighting in a bout of despera-
tion. Israeli officials believe it is
only amatter of time before Syr-
ian rebels topple -the longtime
The conflict has already
spilled over into several of Syr-
'ia's other neighbors - whether
in direct violence or in the flood
of refugees fleeing the blood-
shed. More than 36,000 Syrians
have been killed in the fighting,
according to estimates by anti-
Assad activists.
On Monday, a Syrian fighter
jet bombed a rebel-held area
hugging the border with Turkey
three times, killing 15 to 20 peo-
ple, according to a Turkish offi-
cial. Separately, eight wounded
Syrians died in Turkey, the offi-
cial said, speaking on condition
of anonymity because he was not
authorized to brief the media.

Potential Israeli involvement
in Syria could be far more explo-
sive. The bitter enemies both
possess air forces, tanks and sig-
nificant arsenals of missiles and
other weapons.
Although the Israeli military
is more modern and powerful,
Syria has a collection of chemical
weapons that could wreak havoc
if deployed. Fighting between
the countries could also drag in
Syria's close ally, the Lebanese
guerrilla group Hezbollah, or
Islamic militant groups in the
Gaza Strip on Israel's southern
Israeli political scientist Dore
Gold, an informal adviser to
Netanyahu, said neither Israel
nor Syria has any interest in
escalating the fighting.
"I see no indication of Assad
wanting to draw Israel in. But if
violence comes from the Syrian
army, or even forces operating
in Syria that are affiliated, with
al-Qaida, Israel has to do what is
necessaryto make sure there's no

CIA Director
resigns after
extramarital affair
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - CIA
Director David Petraeus was
shocked to learn last summer
that his mistress was suspected
of sending threatening emails
warning another woman to stay
away from him, former staff
members and friends told The
Associated Press Monday.
Petraeus told these associates
his relationship with the second,
woman, Tampa socialite Jill
Kelley, was platonic, though his
biographer-turned-lover Paula
Broadwell apparently saw her
as a romantic rival. Retired Gen.
Petraeus also denied to these
associates that he had given
Broadwell any of the sensitive
military information alleged to
have been found on her comput-
er, saying anything she had must
have been provided by other
commanders during reporting
trips to Afghanistan.
The associates spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because
they weren't authorized to pub-

licly discuss the matters, which
could be part of an FBI investi-
Petraeus, who led U.S. mili-
tary efforts in Iraq and Afghan-
istan, resigned his CIA post
Friday, acknowledging his extra-
marital affair with Broadwell
and expressing deep regret.
New details of the investiga-
tion that brought an end to his
storied career emerged as Presi-
dent Barack Obama hunted for a
new CIA director and members
of Congress questioned why the
months-long probe was kept
quiet for so long.
Kelley, the Tampa woman,
began receiving harassing
emails in May, according to two
federal law enforcement offi-
cials. They, too, spoke only on
condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to
speak publicly about the matter.
The emails led Kelley to report.
the matter, eventually triggering
the investigation that led Petrae-
us to resign as head of the intel-
ligence agency.
FBI agents traced the alleged
cyber harassment to Broadwell,
the officials said, and discovered
she was exchanging intimate

messages with a private gmail
account. Further investigation
revealed the accountbelonged to
Petraeus under an alias.
Petraeus and Broadwell
apparently used a trick, known
to terrorists and teenagers alike,
to concealitheir email traffic, one
of the law enforcement officials
Rather than transmitting
emails to the other's inbox, they
composed at least some mes-
sages and instead of transmit-
ting them, left them in a draft
folder or in an electronic "drop-
box," the official said. Then the
other person could log onto the
same account and read the draft
emails there. This avoids creat-
ing an email trail that is easier
to trace.
Broadwell had co-authored
a biography titled "All In: The
Education of General David
Petraeus," published in January.
In the preface, she said she met
Petraeus in the spring of 2006
while she was a graduate stu-
dent at the Kennedy School of
Government at Harvard and she
ended up following him on mul-
tiple trips to Afghanistan as part
of her research.
