The Israeli air force struck a Syrian army target Monday in response to what the military said was stray fire into its zone of control on the Golan Heights.

“Earlier, stray fire from Syrian conflict breached Israeli territory in the Golan Heights,” army spokesman Peter Lerner wrote on Twitter.

“Israel Air Force targeted Syrian Army launcher in Syrian Golan Heights, in response,” he added.

A separate army statement said no injuries were reported on the Israeli side.

No further details were given.

Israel has sought to avoid being drawn into neighbouring Syria’s complex war which is now in its sixth year, but it has attacked Syrian military targets when fire from the conflict spills over.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the international community.
