ISRAEL (OBSERVATORY) –┬áThe Israeli army said Monday that a mortar shell landed in the Golan Heights after it was launched from Syrian territory, warning the Syrian government against harming Israel’s security.

“Earlier in the day, a mortar shell landed near the security fence in the northern Golan Heights, in response to which the IDF fired a single artillery in the area from which it was fired,” IDF spokesman Avichai Adarai said Monday.
