The IDF fired warning shots into Syrian territory after a mortar shell fired from Syria exploded in the Golan Height on Sunday, not far from Moshav Alonei Habashan, where a similar shell exploded on Thursday.

"Further attacks [from Syria] will illicit a vigorous response," the IDF Spokesman's Office stated. The military also sent a letter to the United Nations warning Syrian forces to be careful in avoiding fire into the Golan.
