It was not clear whether the shell was fired by the Syrian army or the foreign-sponsored insurgents fighting against the Syrian government.
The Israeli military immediately responded to the shelling on Sunday, firing a guided missile into Syria as a “warning shot.”
According to a military source, the Israeli forces fired a Tammuz missile, also known as Spike, toward the Syrian army unit in the Golan Heights.
The Tel Aviv regime said in a statement that the Israeli military “has filed a complaint through the UN forces operating in the area, stating that fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and shall be responded to with severity.”
The Israeli regime seized the Syrian territory on the strategically important Golan Heights in the 1967 war. Tel Aviv annexed the territory on December 14, 1981 — a move which has been met with international condemnation.
