A mortar shell fired from war-torn Syria struck the outskirts of a town in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Monday, witnesses told AFP.
The shell landed on the western edge of Majdal Shams, some 50 metres (yards) from a house, but caused no injuries or damage, they said.
An Israeli military confirmed the incident but refused to give specifics on exactly where the shell landed.
"A mortar shell hit the northern Golan Heights but caused no damage or injuries," a spokeswoman told AFP, saying initial indications suggested it was "errant fire."
