A mortar shell from Syria was fired on Sunday evening towards the Israeli side of the Golan Heights and exploded near the Druze village of Masade.
The mortar shell exploded in an open area, causing no physical injuries or damages.
The IDF responded with artillery fire towards Syrian military posts, and the IDF Spokesman said direct hits were identified.
The incident marks the third time in recent weeks that fire was opened towards Israel from the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.
Late last month, an Israeli teenager was killed and several people were wounded after an explosive device was detonated near a passing vehicle along the border.
Israel said that military forces loyal to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad were behind the cross-border attack, and struck nine targets belonging to the Syrian army in retaliation.

You would think the Syrians would have enough to do without pissing off the Israelis...
Syria has enough problems so I don’t know why they would want to lob shells at Israel unless the chain of command has broken down to the point where Syrian soldiers are just shelling Israel because they want to. Not because some in ordered them to.
If the truth were known it probably isn’t the Syrians but the rebels the US supports who have been told that’s how to get Syrian forces attacked by Israel.
Lebanon and Syria need to think a bit harder about getting into this.
more rockets from lebanon too
1:24 A.M. The alerts sounded just after midnight in the Western Galilee were due to the launching of several missiles from within Lebanon, the IDF spokesman says, adding that no injuries were caused in the attack. The IDF also said that massive artillery fire was directed at the source of the shooting in response, and that “severe messages” were conveyed to the Lebanese authorities via the UN’s UNIFIL forces.
