Israeli Forces Targets Syrian Artillery Position

Israel has attacked Syrian military positions for the sixth time in over 10 days in response to alleged errant mortar fire from Syria's Golan Heights.

"In response to projectiles launched earlier today at Israel from Syria, Israeli forces targeted the Syrian military artillery position that was the source of the previous fire," read a statement released by the Tel Aviv regime on Saturday.

It added that both of errant rounds which landed in occupied Golan Heights were the "result of internal fighting in Syria."

No casualties have been reported form either of the incidents.

"Israel holds the Syrian regime responsible for any breach of its borders and will act accordingly," read a statement released earlier by Tel Aviv.

Today's incident is the sixth time in over ten days that Israel has attacked Syrian positions, claiming their move to be in response to errant mortar fire.
