Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon on Monday morning said he does not have faith in an Islamic Jihad-declared cease-fire that took effect overnight, saying he expects rocket fire to resume shortly.

Speaking with Army Radio, Ya'alon said Syrian President Bashar Assad is being very careful regarding the border with Israel, but that there is very heavy fighting taking place in the Golan Heights as well as in Damascus. The Syrian president, he assessed, has no interest in opening a new front with Israel.

Israel returned fire with a warning shot into Syria Sunday after errant Syrian shells hit Israeli territory for the fifth time.
