A military spokesman said the Syrians opened fire this morning on Israeli positions in the Mazraat Bet Jan area, Tel Shams and other points. Israeli gunners returned the fire. The shooting was described as sporadic and lasted 90 minutes. It ended by mid-day. Golan Heights settlers who took to their bomb shelters this morning emerged in the afternoon and resumed their daily routine.
