Israel tells civilians to steer clear of Syria border

"Several projectiles fired from Syria hit an open area in the northern Golan Heights".

Israeli jets on Saturday hit several targets in Syria allegedly in response to rocket attacks from the war-torn country, the military said in a written statement.

Israeli armed forces issued a warning against visiting the Golan Heights, an area both Syria and Israel lay claim over, adding that the explosions were due to "errant fire".

Israeli aircraft targeted three positions from which the projectiles were fired, the IDF said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor which has been reporting on Syria's six-year war, said two Syrian soldiers were killed in the Israeli strikes.

Rebel fighters fire mortar shells towards forces loyal to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad in Quneitra province, bordering the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, Syria June 24, 2017. "As far as we are concerned, the Assad regime is responsible for what is happening in its territory and it will continue to bear the consequences if such events repeat themselves".

The military described the shellfire into the Israeli-held territory as errant fire and called it an "unacceptable breach" of sovereignty.

Around 510 square kilometers of the Golan are under Syrian control.

In April, Israel shot down what it identified only as "a target" over the Golan, hours after Syria accused it of hitting a military position near Damascus airport.

On Saturday, Israel lodged a complaint about the errant fire to the U.N. Disengagement Observer Force, a peacekeeping mission operated by worldwide troops that monitors the 1974 buffer zone between Israel and Syria.
