Israel threatens to to step up military response to Syrian fight spill-over in Golan Heights
The projectiles crossed into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and the military said it targeted three Syrian artillery guns in response. No damage or injuries were reported in Israel.
The Syrian military said it came under attack in Quneitra province, which sits near the Golan Heights territory that Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East War.
“The Israeli enemy assaulted one of our military positions this morning, which led to material damages,” it said.
During Syria’s more than six-year-old conflict, Israel has returned fire across the border, including stray shells from fighting among Syrian combatants.
