The IDF reported that the mortar was spillover from fighting within Syria, and that in response, the IDF attacked a target in the northern Syrian Golan and confirmed a hit.

Such spillover is not unusual, and the IDF has usually responded, even if it was expected to be accidental, with attacks against Syrian Army positions.
