Syria says Israel fires shells into its territory
Syria's state news agency says that Israeli forces fired four tank shells at its territory, describing it as a violation of its sovereignty.


SANA said that the shells were fired into Syria early Wednesday. Earlier, Israel had said it fired at militants planting an explosive on the border. During Syria's civil war, mortars overshooting their target have repeatedly hit the Golan Heights, and Israel has responded on several occasions. (AP)
