Projectile Strikes Israeli Side of Golan Heights

A projectile, possibly from Syria, landed in the Israeli part of the Golan Heights today. While no injuries were reported, The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross and Tamar Pileggi write that the IDF is investigating the source of the fire:

It was not immediately clear from the army where the fire originated, but spillover missiles from the fighting in neighboring Syria occasionally land on the Israeli side of the plateau.

Israel holds the Syrian regime responsible for all errant fire, regardless of the source, and frequently retaliates against stray missile strikes inside its territory.

On Sunday, a mortar round fired from Syria hit an open area on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights demilitarized zone, causing no injuries or damage. In response, the IDF later on Sunday struck Syrian Army artillery targets on the Golan Heights.
