Bullets fired from Syria at Israeli military drone
Shots were fired from Syria at an Israeli military drone on Thursday, an army statement said, but the bullets missed their target and smashed into a civilian home in the Golan Heights town of Majdal Shams.
Following a rash of flare-ups last year, the Israel-Syria border has been relatively quiet in recent months.
However the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement that after shots were fired at one of their UAVs.
"Hits were identified in Majdal Shams in the northern Golan Heights. No injuries were reported, damage was identified in a house in Majdal Shams."
The statement added that troops are searching the area.
The army did not say if they believed the shots were fired deliberately or accidental spill-over from Syria's long-running civil war.
Several jihadist groups are known to be active on the Syrian side of the border, fighting both the Syrian government, the local Druze population and moderate rebels.
