Foreign Ministry source says Israel views the incident as a serious violation, especially given the current instability in Syria
Syrian troops entered the demilitarized buffer zone with Israel last week, during fighting with rebel groups near the Golan Heights.
Following the incident, Israel issued a complaint to the UN, Haaretz reported Sunday.
The penetration occurred last Thursday. Syrian troops entered the demilitarized zone near the Druze village of Mas’ade in the northern Golan Heights, apparently during clashes with rebel forces.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak, visiting the area Thursday, said he heard battles between Syrian troops and opposition forces taking place across the border.
