ISRAEL-SYRIA-CONFLICT-GOLAN

An Israeli soldier inspects an ammunition belt for a machine gun of a Merkava tank stationed in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on July 16, 2013, after mortar fire from inside war-torn Syria exploded in northern Golan, near the border with Syria earlier in the day causing several wildfires to break out. The apparently stray rounds struck as Syrian rebels and regime forces battled near Quneitra which lies in no-man's land, an AFP correspondent reported. Israel, which remains technically at war with Syria, seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the strategic plateau during the 1967 Six-Day War, which it later annexed in a move never recognised by the international community.
