An Israeli plane accidentally launched a missile at Syrian territory in late June, according to a report by News 12 Monday evening.
The Israeli Air Force had sent the plane to investigate a suspicious target on the Golan Heights near the Syrian border.
The investigation revealed that the pilot fired a missile at the target, which was later discovered to have been a false alarm.
According to the report, the pilot was accused of acting recklessly in firing a missile without properly identifying his target beforehand.
The pilot, who serves in the reserves, was suspended for a short time before returning to active duty.
