Two Golan Heights residents saw shots fired toward Israel from Syria, and heard a hissing sound accompanying the shots. However, there was no report of any explosion.
The incident took place near the town of Alonei Habashan in the Golan Heights.
Israel Defense Forces troops who searched the area found an unexploded tank shell.
Earlier Wednesday, Israel repatriated six of seven Syrians after treating them for wounds suffered in the insurgency against Syrian President Bashar Assad, the IDF said.
Israel admitted the Syrians on February 16 through the Golan Heights, whose eastern foothills have seen fighting between Assad's forces and rebels. Israeli officials gave no further details on the casualties' identities.
One of the men was reportedly severely wounded, while the others suffered medium injuries from bullets and shrapnel.
A spokeswoman for the IDF said six of them were discharged from hospital and returned to Syria on Wednesday. The seventh was still under Israeli medical care with severe wounds, she said.
