Israeli soldiers fire at ‘armed suspects’ in Golan


JERUSALEM: Israeli soldiers fired toward “armed suspects” who crossed the cease-fire line with Syria in the annexed Golan Heights, the army said Monday.

The army said in a statement the incident occurred late Sunday near the border fence, but provided few other details. No Israeli soldiers were injured.

It was not clear who the suspects were, why they had infiltrated or whether any were wounded.

Israel seized much of the Golan Heights from Syria in a 1967 war and later annexed it in moves never recognized by the international community.

The two countries are still technically at war.
