Israel has sent a number of warning messages to Syria and is ready to defend itself, Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Friday, a day after three Syrian mortar shells landed in Israeli territory. Last week, three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized zone on the Golan Heights.

"The other side has received no small number of messages recently," Ya'alon wrote on his Twitter account, saying that Syria has reacted accordingly.

Saying he hopes someone on the Syrian side takes control of the situation, Ya'alon parsed no words in saying Israel is ready to take action if necessary.

"If we see that it is spilling in our direction, we know how to defend Israeli citizens and the sovereignty of our state," Ya'alon added.
