Mortar fire from Syria struck the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights Monday, according to Agence France-Presse.
No casualties or damage was reported and the incident was considered to be "errant fire."
Israel seized the previously controlled Syrian plateau during the 1967 Six-Day War and officially annexed the territory in 1981. The Jewish state's annexation of the territory, however, is not officially recognized under international law.
