OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: A mortar round fired from war-torn Syria struck the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Monday in what was believed to be "errant fire", the army said.
No casualties or damage was reported.
A military spokeswoman told AFP that "a shell hit the central Golan Heights", and that the army was investigating.
"Initial indications are that the shell was errant fire, part of the fighting in Syria," she added.
Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (480 square miles) of the strategic plateau during the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed it in 1981 in a move not recognised internationally.
Syria has always insisted on the return of the Golan as part of any peace treaty with the Jewish state.
The ceasefire line had been mostly quiet until the Syrian uprising erupted in 2011.
The Israeli-occupied sector has been tense since then and with minor flare-ups when Syrian small arms fire or mortar rounds hit the Israeli side, prompting soldiers to fire back.
