|Israel's new defence minister Moshe Yaalon has vowed an 'immediate' answer to all Syrian gunfire onto the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, saying the government in Damascus was responsible. 'Every violation of Israeli sovereignty and shooting from the Syrian side will immediately be answered by silencing the source of fire.' It was not immediately clear whether the shooting was from the Syrian army or from rebel forces in the area. Late on Saturday, gunfire hit several military vehicles travelling in the same area, causing damage but no casualties, the army said. And earlier this month, a mortar round landed on the Israeli-controlled sector after nearly three months of quiet.|
