JERUSALEM: Israeli soldiers patrolling the disputed Golan Heights along the border with Syria fired back after coming under fire overnight, an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) statement said on Tuesday.
“Overnight, shots were fired at an IDF patrol on the border in the central Golan Heights, damaging a military vehicle,” said a statement on the Army’s website. No one had been wounded, it added.
“In response, IDF forces returned precise fire at the source of the gunfire. They reported a direct hit. The IDF views the recent incidents in the north with concern and has lodged a complaint with United Nations Disengagement Force, which is responsible for patrolling that area,’’ the statement added.
