JNS.orgIsrael Defense Forces soldiers on routine patrol near the Israel-Syria border in the Golan Heights came under fire Monday, Army Radio reported. The troops returned fire at the Syrian post recognized as the source of the fire.

Earlier on Monday, a Syrian mortar shell landed in the Druze village of Majdal Shams, causing no harm. Both incidents are believed to be cases of accidental fire as a result of the Syrian civil war between rebels and President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.
