JERUSALEM (Reuters) - A projectile from fighting in the Syrian civil war struck the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Thursday and Israeli forces responded by firing at a Syrian army position, the military said.

In a statement, the military said it appeared the shooting from Syria was not deliberate but "errant fire from the internal fighting". There were no immediate reports of casualties from either side.
