Here is some background to acquaint posters of the current situation on the Golan.
On 2 November 2012, three Syrian Army tanks crossed into the UN-administered demilitarized zone and clashed with rebels near the village of Beer Ajam. During the clashes, stray bullets hit an Israeli patrol in the area. Israel responded on 5 November by filing a complaint with the United Nations Security Council, claiming Syria violated the 1974 Agreement on Disengagement signed following the Yom Kippur War. The terms of the 1974 armistice prevent the Syrian military from conducting operations within the DMZ.
On 11 November, a mortar shell from Syria's Quneitra Governorate landed near an Israeli military outpost in the Golan Heights.
On 12 November 2012, the Israeli Golan was shelled, after which the Israeli Defense Forces returned fire hitting a Syrian mobile artillery.
