A civilian vehicle in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights was targeted by forces in neighboring Syria on Sunday in an attack that killed a 15-year-old boy and prompted Israeli tanks to retaliate by firing on Syrian government targets, the Israeli military said.

It was the first death on the Israeli side of the Golan since the Syrian civil war erupted more than three years ago. Two other people were wounded in the attack.
