The IDF said Saturday that it had destroyed an artillery piece belonging to Assad regime forces in Syria in response to two shells exploding in the Golan Heights.
The two mortar shells, spillover from the fighting in Syria, landed on the Israeli side of the border causing no damage or injuries, in the latest such incident on the tense frontier.
“A projectile launched from Syria hit an open area in the northern Golan Heights,” an IDF statement said.
“The errant projectile is a result of internal fighting in Syria,” it added, saying that there were no reports of casualties.
