No injuries or damage were reported in the explosion that took place in an open field in Israeli territory.
The Israel Defense Forces believes that the shell that exploded in the central Golan Heights was fired into Israeli territory by mistake.
"The IDF sees the Syrian regime responsible for that which takes place in its territory and will not countenance any attempt to hinder the sovereignty of the State of Israel and the security of its residents," the military said in a statement.
A similar incident took place two weeks ago. Israel responded by attacking Syrian military targets near Quneitra.
