Two mortar shells fired from Syria, likely spillover from the bloody civil war in the country, landed on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights Monday near Tel Fares.
No damage or injuries were reported.
This is not the first time the site, which includes an IDF observation post, has taken fire. In September, three shells fell at Tel Fares, with one striking the IDF position.
Since the start of the civil war in Syria in March 2011, dozens of mortar shells have landed in Israeli territory. In the past, Israel filed a complaint with the peacekeeping forces in the Golan, requesting that the UN bring an end to the cross-border shelling.
Earlier this month, the first two IDF soldiers were injured by spillover from the conflict. The IDF fired a Tammuz missile at a Syrian target across the northern border in response .
Occasionally IDF soldiers and positions are intentionally targeted.
Late last month, an Israeli army patrol took fire along the Syrian border in the northern Golan Heights. No injuries were reported in that incident.
In mid-August, after 10 shells landed in Israeli territory, the IDF launched a Tammuz missile, destroying a Syrian cannon that had fired at Israel.
