Israel's military says its tanks have scored "direct hits" on Syrian artillery units after Syrian mortar shells fell near an Israeli army post.

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.

"We will not allow our borders to be violated or our citizens to be fired upon." Read more at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-20302503
