Israel returns fire after shooting from Syria

Nov. 18, 2012 1:46 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 18, 2012 9:32 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Shots were fired from Syria towards Israeli soldiers stationed in the occupied Golan Heights early Sunday, Israel's army said.

"Soldiers responded with artillery fire to the source of the shooting and the (Israeli army) has reported the incident to UN officials," a military spokeswoman said.

On Thursday, a stray bullet fired from Syria struck near an Israeli army outpost in the Golan.

Israel shot back twice last week after stray mortar bombs hit its side - the first such engagement over the strategic plateau since 1973.

Israel has been on high alert with Syria in the north since fighting between President Bashar Assad's forces and rebels began spilling over a ceasefire line in recent weeks.

Technically, Syria and Israel are still at war, but the Golan, a strategic plateau, has been largely quiet for decades.
