JERUSALEM (AFP) - Israeli artillery fired into Syria early Sunday after gunfire from Syria hit an army vehicle but caused no injuries, the Israeli military said, in the latest spillover of violence from the bloody civil war raging across the ceasefire line.

"Shots were fired at IDF (Israeli army) soldiers...in the central Golan Heights," an army spokesman told AFP. "Soldiers responded with artillery fire towards the source of the shooting."
