Israel lodged a complaint with United Nations monitors on Saturday after three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized Golan Heights zone that separates the two countries, a military spokeswoman said.
"Three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized zone near the central Golan heights and the Israel Defense Forces filed a violation complaint to the U.N.," a statement said.
The spokeswoman told Agence France Presse the incident occurred on Saturday morning, at some distance from Israeli positions on the strategic plateau.
"I don't know how many kilometers, but not very close to the border," she said.
Israeli media said the tanks entered the village of Beer Ajam, southeast of Quneitra, to fight rebel forces.
