The IDF is investigating but said that the source of the shooting could have been hunters on the other side of the border.

The incident occurred less than a week after an explosive device detonated on the side of the road near the Syrian border in the Golan as an IDF patrol was passing by. The attack, believed to be directed at the patrol, damaged an IDF jeep.
