      Army Provides Information on Escalation in North


      Israeli troops fired tank shells into Syria on Monday in retaliation for a mortar round that struck near an army post in the Golan Heights, scoring "direct hits" on the source of the fire, the army said.

      "A short while ago, a mortar shell hit an open area in the vicinity of an IDF post in the central Golan Heights, as part of the internal conflict inside Syria, causing no damage or injuries," it said.

      "In response, IDF soldiers fired tank shells towards the source of the fire, confirming direct hits."
