  Smoke rises after shells exploded in the Syrian village of Bariqa, near the Israeli-Syrian border, near Alonei Habashan in the Golan Heights, Monday, Nov. 12, 2012. An Israeli tank scored a "direct hit" Monday on a Syrian armored vehicle after a mortar shell landed on Israeli-held territory, the military said, in the first direct confrontation between the countries since the Syrian uprising broke out, sharpening fears that Israel could be drawn into the civil war next door.
