Israeli and Syrian Forces Shoot at Each Other in the Golan Heights

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP)—Syria said Tuesday it destroyed an Israeli vehicle that crossed the ceasefire line in the Golan Heights overnight, while the Israeli military said gunfire from Syria had hit an Israeli patrol, damaging a vehicle and prompting its troops to fire back.
