The Israeli army announced in a statement on Saturday that some 10 rounds of mortar, presumably errant fire from Syrian factions fighting each other, had hit Syria’s strategic southwestern region of Quneitra near the border with Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories. The Israeli army said its airstrikes struck two tanks and a post from which the mortars were allegedly fired.

Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria after the Six-Day War in 1967 and later occupied it.
