Rocket from Syria hits Israel-held Golan, no injuries: army

Israeli soldiers are seen on their Merkava tank positioned near the Quneitra checkpoint on the border with Syria in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights, on June 22, 2014A rocket fired from Syria hit the Israeli-occupied sector of the Golan Heights on Sunday, falling on open ground and causing no casualties, an army spokeswoman told AFP. The army said Israel responded with artillery fire at Syrian military posts and that “hits were identified” and that it also shelled the source of the fire from Lebanon, lodging a complaint with UN peacekeepers there. An Israeli Arab teenager was killed on the Golan border last month by what may have been a rocket, mortar fire or an explosive device, prompting Israel to carry out retaliatory air raids on Syrian army positions. Sunday’s incident was the first of its kind from Syrian territory since Israel on Tuesday launched a fierce air campaign on Gaza with the stated aim of stemming a rising tide of rocket fire by Palestinian militants.
