A mortar shell exploded Tuesday morning in Tel Fares near the Golan Heights border, Israel Radio reported.

The incident seemed to be accidental and no injuries or damages were reported.

IDF related the explosion to fallout from fighting between rebels and Syrian forces across the border.

Earlier Monday, two shells fired from Syria landed in the southern part of the Golan Heights, though the incident was unintentional and the result of fighting between Syrian troops and rebels just over the border, according to an IDF evaluation.
