It is not known if Syrian soldiers or rebels were the source of the mortar fire and if they intentionally aimed at Israel after learning of the visit by the Prime Minister.

Sniper fire and mortar shell attacks have been frequent events in the Golan Heights during the past year of conflict in the Syrian civil war.
