Israeli military have responded to a mortar shell attack by Syrian forces near the border in the Golan Heights, said an army spokeswoman. Lieutenant Colonel Avital Leibovich said:
We answered with a warning shot toward Syrian areas. We understand this was a mistake and was not meant to target Israel and then that is why we fired a warning shot in retaliation.
The Israeli military also said it has filed a complaint through United Nations forces operating in the area, stating that "fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and shall be responded to with severity".
Prime Minister David Cameron said Syria's President Bashar al Assad should face "full international justice" for his "appalling crimes".
The Prime Minister has faced questions about his promotion of arms deals during a three-day tour of the Gulf region that started today.
