Israeli troops fired tank shells into Syria on Monday in retaliation for a mortar round that struck near an army post in the Golan Heights, scoring "direct hits" on the source of the fire, the army said.
"A short while ago, a mortar shell hit an open area in the vicinity of an IDF (army) post in the central Golan Heights, as part of the internal conflict inside Syria, causing no damage or injuries," it said.
"In response, IDF soldiers fired tank shells towards the source of the fire, confirming direct hits."
Israeli military sources said: "Syrian mobile artillery was directly hit," without elaborating further.
The army warned that any further fire from Syria towards the Israeli-occupied sector of the strategic plateau, would be answered with "severity."
"Fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and shall be responded to with severity," a statement said, indicating that Israel had filed a complaint with UN observers monitoring the ceasefire line.

Yo..Obama...That is how it’s done you fool.
P.S. Stay out of my foxhole.
Any bets on when Israel decides the red line is close enough to warrant action? Any of the astute want to try to predict how it will play out as far as spreading violence/instability?
“Hey Achmed!” “What?” >BLAM<
Just read your FRreeper name, after I posted. LOL
The Mortar the Merrier!
Interesting - direct hits on the mortars (but no mention of the rocket launchers).
I have wondered if the Iron Dome, which intercepts artillery and mortars, could also be used for counter-battery fire. The physics of a mortar or artillery shell follow to 4 basic equations of motion - meaning that if Iron Dome can hit it mid-air, it can certainly calculate exactly where it came from, much better than any other previous system.
Aim small miss small, Israel.
