iStockphoto/Thinkstock(GOLAN HEIGHTS, Israel) — An Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Jeep was hit by gunfire from Syria while on a routine patrol along the border in the Golan Heights, military officials in Israel confirmed. According to the IDF, the Jeep was hit by stray bullets from a firefight inside Syria.
As with what happened after Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized zone in the Golan last weekend, the incident has been reported to the U.N. observer force there, and the IDF seems to be playing down this latest spillover from the Syrian conflict.

No injuries have been reported.
