Israel tells civilians to steer clear of Syria border

"Furthermore, the IAF targeted two tanks belonging to the Syrian regime in the Northern Syrian Golan Heights", the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement sent to news media outlets, including Breitbart Jerusalem.

It also hit another position from which a "projectile" was launched into Israeli territory.

Errant fire from the six-year fighting in Syria occasionally spills over to Israel, which often retaliates with airstrikes. Those reports could not be immediately verified.

Israeli military spokesman Avichay Adraee wrote on his Arabic-language Facebook page that about 10 shells hit the Israeli-occupied area nearby, adding that Israel's air force struck Syrian army targets in the area.

Forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah have been clashing with rebels not far from the Golan Heights. The Syrian army said it seemed the two attacks were coordinated and that the attack by Israeli military helicopters supported the Nusra Front's assault on a Quneitra suburb.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.

The IDF reportedly stressed that it views Damascus as "ultimately responsible for what is happening in its territory".

On Saturday, Israel lodged a complaint about the errant fire to the U.N. Disengagement Observer Force, a peacekeeping mission operated by global troops that monitors the 1974 buffer zone between Israel and Syria.
