Syrian troops fire on Israelis in the Golan
For the second day in a row, IDF troops have returned fire after coming under fire by Syrian troops
. No casualties have been reported on the Israeli side.
Gunfire from Syria was directed at IDF soldiers who were patrolling the border on Sunday morning.
IDF returned fire using a surface-to-surface Tamuz guided missile on a
Syrian army position from which the soldiers were attacked. The Syrian position was reportedly destroyed in the return fire.
There were no injuries or damage reported on the Israeli side, the army said.
The incident came after an IDF jeep on patrol near the Syrian border was hit by gunfire on Saturday evening.
Assad must think he can distract the rebels - who have vowed to reclaim the Golan from Israel - by firing on Israeli troops. It's not going to work.
