Israel: Suspects From Syria Enter Israel Army Post

Wednesday, 17 July 2013 07:34 AM EDT

JERUSALEM — The Israeli army says Syrian suspects briefly infiltrated an unmanned military post on the border between Syria and the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

The military said Wednesday that when Israeli troops approached the post, they were fired upon from inside Syria. Israeli troops returned fire.

The army says the incident took place at night and that the suspects have since left the post. It's the first time suspects from Syria have occupied an Israeli post since the Syrian conflict erupted in March 2011.

Israel has been wary of Syrian violence spilling across the border into Israeli-controlled territory.

Syrian mortar shells have landed inside Israeli-held areas, but Israel believes them to be errant shots. Israel has occasionally accused Syria of aiming at Israeli targets, and Israeli troops have returned fire.
