Moreover, the Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants inside Syria.

"We are not prepared to accept any amount of fire in the Golan or any other area...we will not allow extremist Islam led by Iran or ISIS to open a front of terror against the state of Israel from the Syrian side on the Golan", Netanyahu said. "This is an implementation of old policy".

At least one shell fired from Syria landed in northern Israel on Wednesday evening the eve of 5 Tammuz, marking at least the third incident in as many days. Israel holds the Assad regime responsible for all incidents originating from the war-torn country. Around 10 mortar rounds were confirmed to have landed in Israeli territory near Syria's Quneitra area.

Israel took control of the Golan during the 1967 Six-Day War.

The website TMZ reported that Williams was found at fault, but it was unclear if she was cited. Barson's wife was reportedly also hospitalized for injuries, including broken bones.

Israeli warplanes struck a Syrian military position in the occupied Golan Heights on Friday, shortly after a shell fell into the area.

According to al-Masdar, a pro-Syrian government media outlet, no casualties were reported from the artillery shells that were fired from the Israeli jets.

The Israeli occupation forces announced that its air forces attacked the Syrian government troops for the fourth time in a week in response to alleged falling of Syrian projectiles on the Israeli-occupied part of the Golan Heights.

In a speech on Wednesday in Katzrin, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "We are here celebrating the fortieth anniversary of Katzrin, the capital of the Golan Heights".
