Syria intended to increase activities against Israel, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz said Tuesday, according to Army Radio.

Gantz's remarks followed Syrian claims provided on its state news agency that it was responsible for firing shots into Israeli territory and destroying an IDF vehicle.

IDF forces fired three times before destroying the Syrian outpost, from where the direction of the fire apparently originated, he was cited as saying.

"We will not let the Golan Heights become a convenient space of response for Assad," Gantz said at a conference at the University of Haifa, "we will defend and respond if and when we need to," he added.
