Israel strikes Syria military posts in response to errant rocket

Jerusalem/Damascus, Sep 28 (IANS) The Israeli army said that it fired artillery into Syria in response to an errant projectile that hit the Golan Heights, a region in Levant.

On Sunday, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported that a rocket landed in an open field in the northern Golan Heights. No injuries or damages were reported.

The rocket was launched from the war-torn Syria and “was due to the internal fighting in Syria”, Xinhua news agency quoted a military statement as saying.
