JERUSALEM, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on Monday fired back after another Syrian mortar shell landed in the Israeli-occupied part of Golan Heights, the second time in 24 hours.
The Israeli army on Sunday launched warning artillery fire into Syria, after a mortar shell hit a military outpost in the Israeli- occupied part of Golan Heights.
In the past weeks, shells and stray bullets have dripped across the border from the war-torn Syria.
Following a formal complaint issued by Israel to the United Nations on the shellings, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asked all parties to act responsibly.
"The Secretary-General is deeply concerned by the potential for escalation and calls for the utmost restraint and urges Syria and Israel to uphold the Disengagement Agreement, respect their mutual obligations and halt firing of any kind across the cease-fire line, " Ban's office said in a statement.
