This evening (Friday), three mortar shell exploded in an open area in the northern Golan Heights. A red alert was heard. No injuries or damage were reported. The explosion is believed to be from the civil war in Syria. Shortly afterwards, the IDF responded by firing at the cannons from which the attack was made.

The shooting follows a long period of relative calm from the northern border with Syria. The last time the peace was violated was approximately a month ago when a Syrian anti-aircraft missile was launched at IDF Air Force planes that attacked a weapons convoy in Syria. One of the missiles was intercepted by the Arrow System.
