Israel Fires Warning Shots Into Syria
Israel fired into Syria today after mortar round was fired into the Golan Heights.
The BBC reported:
Israeli forces say they have fired warning shots into Syria after a mortar round fired from Syria hit an Israeli post in the Golan Heights.
It is the first time that Israel has fired on Syrian forces since the Middle East war of 1973.
The latest incident comes days after Israeli troops were put on high alert after a vehicle was hit by Syrian fire in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
The two countries are formally at war and a UN force patrols the buffer zone.
The Israel Defence Forces have filed a complaint through the UN forces operating in the area, stating that fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and “shall be responded to with severity”.
