Israeli tanks opened fire late Wednesday night after lookouts spotted a number of unidentified suspects late Wednesday night during operations in the center of the Golan Heights.
The suspects were “situated in military positions” near the border with Syria, the IDF said in a statement.
IDF tanks opened “distancing fire” towards the suspects, along with flares, prompting the infiltrators to flee back into Syrian territory, a military spokesperson said.
