The number of rounds fired could not yet be determined due to poor weather conditions. There was no report of damage.
In similar incidents in the past the IDF said the cause was most likely to be errant shells fired by one of the sides battling in Syria.
The IDF temporarily closed the tourism site located on Mount Hermon to visitors following the mortar fire, but later opened the lower cable car. However, the site's upper cable car route remained closed.
This was the first time mortar shells from Syria have landed in Mount Hermon, a popular tourist site in Israel.
The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force stationed on the border between Israel and Syria has been notified of the incident, the IDF said.
