A mortar shell landed near the security fence in the northern Golan Heights on Monday, the army announced.

The mortar shell which hit Israeli territory is believed to be spillover from fighting across the border in Syria.

In response, the IDF fired towards an artillery piece in the area from which the mortar was fired

"The IDF views the Syrian regime as responsible for everything in its territory and will not tolerate any attempt to harm the sovereignty of the State of Israel and the security of its residents,” read the army statement.
