Israel strikes Syrian army position in Quneitra in response to mortar fire

A loaded missile launcher used by an armed group of men, not specified which group of rebels, at Syria’s Quneitra border crossing between Syria and the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

:: Israel has struck a Syrian army position in the southern area of Quneitra on Wednesday in retaliation to stray mortar fire that hit the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the Israeli army and a pro-Syrian government social media account reported.

“In response to the projectile launched from Syria towards Israel, the Israel Defense Forces targeted the Syrian military position that fired the mortar,” the Israeli army said on Twitter.

The mortar fire was the latest of occasional incidents of spillover of fighting in Syria into the Israeli-held Golan.

No casualties were reported. It was the second such incident in 24 hours in Quneitra.
