Two Syrian civilians were wounded by Israeli army tank fire toward the suburbs of Quneitra in the Syrian Golan Heights, Syria's official news agency reported Friday.
According to a report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an Israeli tank fired three shells at two figures who approached the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria, near the town of al-Hamidiyah in the Quneitra area.
The identity of the wounded is not yet known, according to the report.
The Israel Defense Forces has refused to comment on the Syrian report.
In July Syrian media reported that Israel launched airstrikes targeting Syrian military positions around Damascus, killing eight people, including three soldiers, wounding seven others, and causing material damage.
