Israel's Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Tuesday Israeli forces would respond to any cross-border fire from Syria.

"The army forces along the northern border have been given clear instructions to respond to any fire from the Syrian side without asking for further permission," Ya'alon told reporters during a visit to Israel's Southern Command headquarters.

Israeli minister said Israel did not interfere in the civil war in Syria, adding "Any kind of attempts to transfer arms will bring back the red lines for Israel."

During Monday's mortar shelling from Syrian side, rounds landed on the Israeli controlled part of the Golan Heights.
