Israel targets Syrian position after rocket hits Golan

Israeli forces attacked a Syrian military position on Wednesday, hours after a rocket from Syria hit the Israeli-held Golan Heights, the army said.

“In response to the projectile which hit Israel earlier today, the IDF targeted an artillery position of the Syrian regime in the northern Syrian Golan Heights,” a statement said.

The rocket was believed to be stray fire from fighting between the Syrian government forces and rebels.

It caused no casualties, the army said, and was “most likely a result of the internal fighting in Syria.”

Israel has sought to avoid being drawn into the conflict, but has attacked Syrian military targets when fire spills over the demarcation line.

The Israeli army holds the Syrian government accountable for any fire from its territory, regardless of the source.
