A short while ago, a mortar shell hit an open area in the vicinity of an IDF
post in the central Golan Heights, as part of the internal conflict inside
Syria, causing no damage or injuries.

In response, IDF soldiers fired tank shells towards the source of the fire,
confirming direct hits.

The IDF has filed a complaint with the UN forces operating in the area,
stating that fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and
shall be responded to with severity.

Yesterday, a mortar shell hit an IDF post in the Golan Heights adjacent to
the Israel-Syria border, as part of the internal conflict inside Syria. In
response, IDF soldiers fired warning shots towards Syrian areas, and the IDF
filed a complaint through the UN forces operating in the area, stating that
fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and shall be
responded to with severity.

Last Sunday (November 4), Chief of the General Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz
toured the Golan Heights together with commanders of the Gaash Formation,
which is responsible for protecting the region around the Syrian border.
"This is a Syrian issue that could become our issue," the Chief of Staff
then said of the ongoing fighting in Syria, instructing forces in the field
to remain alert in protecting the Golan Heights and preventing violence from
spilling across the border.
