An Israel Defence Forces helicopter was seen firing flares while flying over the Golan Heights, in Majdal Sams, on Monday, reportedly in response to a suspected sniper attack from Syria against Israeli troops.

There were no reports of injuries.

According to local media, the Israeli army struck a vehicle near the border of the Golan Heights, in Syria's Quneitra, that they say was involved in the sniping incident.
