An Israeli army patrol took fire along the Syrian border Sunday night in the northern Golan Heights. No injuries were reported.
The IDF troops returned fire at the source of the engagement.
It was not immediately clear whether there was damage inflicted to the vehicle the soldiers were riding in.
Last week, UN Middle East envoy Robert Serry told the Security Council that fighting on the Israel-Syria border could “jeopardize the ceasefire” between Jerusalem and Damascus that has been in place since 1974, monitored by UN peacekeepers.
Serry said that during “heavy clashes” earlier in September between Syrian troops and the opposition, five artillery shells and one tank shell landed on the Israeli side of the truce line.
Serry said the Israelis did not retaliate. Previous cross-border fire has seen Israeli military responses against Syrian targets.
