On Friday, President Barack Obama left Israel, after spending a couple days with the leaders of America's closest ally in the region.
Now today, two days later, Israel has acknowledged that it fired at a military position in Syria. "Israel said it fired into Syria on Sunday and destroyed a machinegun position in the Golan Heights from where shots had been fired at Israeli soldiers in a further spillover of the Syrian civil war along a tense front," Reuters reports. "It was not immediately clear whether Israel held Syrian troops or rebels responsible for what a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said had been a deliberate attack on Israeli patrols in the occupied territory."
