(AP) Israel's military says its forces responded to fire from Syria, shooting toward a target across the border.


The military says its soldiers were on routine patrol in the Golan Heights Sunday when they were fired upon. The military did not say what ammunition was fired on either side.


A military spokesman says the soldiers responded with "accurate fire toward the Syrian post from which they were fired upon." He could not say whether regular Syrian forces or rebels fired. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.


Syrian rebels have been moving on and capturing Syrian territory at the foot of the Golan over the past week. Israel captured the strategic plateau from Syria in the 1967 Mideast war.
