Israeli tanks 'hit Syrian units' in Golan
Israel's military says its tanks have scored "direct hits" on Syrian artillery units
Israeli tanks usually do hit what they shoot at...
after Syrian mortar shells fell near an Israeli army post.

It comes a day after Israel fired warning shots after it said a Syrian shell hit another of its army posts on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The episode is the most serious between the two countries since the Arab-Israeli war of 1973. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "We are closely monitoring what is happening and will respond appropriately.

"We will not allow our borders to be violated or our citizens to be fired upon."

It was not clear if the tank-fire caused any casualties, Israeli Army Radio reported. "The Assad army asked Israel to stop firing," it added.
"Please don't let them kill us!"

#1  If Israel had just complied with Obummer's request directive to roll back Israeli borders to pre-1967 borders they just wouldn't have to worry about shelling the Golan Heights when fired upon (sarc on). As the saying goes "With friends like this, who needs enemies?"
