IDF official: Golan fire from Syria most likely deliberate

A senior IDF official said Sunday that the army believes that fire on the Golan Heights on Sunday was a deliberate attack on Israel.


"A hole was found in the fence, following firing at a car that was conducting routine work," the official said. "The area is controlled by rebels, but it is not clear whether they were responsible for the shooting. Our initial response was artillery fire.


"The area has been isolated, and we will check the intelligence in the next couple of hours to see who is behind the attack. The shooting at the vehicle was most likely deliberate." (Yoav Zitun)
