Three Syrian mortar shells hit Israeli territory in the Golan Heights.

The shells landed near the border fence with Syria early Tuesday morning. No damages or injuries were reported. It was the second time this week that Syrian rockets have landed on Israeli territory.

It is believed that the mortars were fired at Syrian rebels or Syrian soldiers as part of the country’s two-year civil war. Fighting on the border between Israel and Syria has increased in recent days, according to the Times of Israel.

Several Syrians have been brought to Israeli hospitals in the past week for treatment of wounds sustained in the fighting.
