    skirmishes on the Northern armistice line for years before.    the IDF was pushing North through the plains below the heights.  Great efforts to get to the headwaters of the Dan river.  Some skirmishes, mostly artilliery exchanges, got quite hot.  Right before Israel attacked the Egyptian Air Force pre-emptively, or by choice,  there was an air to air combat between Syria and Israel, which the Syrians lost.  

    There were no Syrian Army incursions into Israel of any significance.

    Most of the action in the war was in the south and West, the Syrian army stayed put.   Syria agreed to the cease fire, and 4 hours later, Dayan attacked and won the heights.
