The IDF denied on Monday morning Israeli media reports earlier in the day of a rocket launching from internal fighting in Syria landing in Israel's northern Golan Heights region.
In the statement, the military stated however that stray rounds from a single machine gun fired from across the Syrian border had struck near a United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) post near the border between the two countries. As the result of the apparently erroneous bullet shots, a fire broke out in a nearby minefield. The IDF said the blaze was under control and there were no reports of injuries.
The IDF's statement came after Channel 2 reported earlier in the morning that agriculture workers in the Golan Heights had been evacuated after rockets from Syria landed in the area.
