Rockets were launched from Syria into Israeli territory, the Israel Defense Forces said Tuesday. The rockets landed in open areas, the IDF said. The IDF did not immediately provide details on damage or injuries.
A Syrian eyewitness, who spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity for security reasons, said three rockets were launched in the direction of the Golan Heights. According to the media activist group Shaam News Network, 12 rockets were launched from various Syrian locations close to the Israeli border.
Of these, eight rockets landed inside Syria, while four flew toward the Golan Heights. It was not immediately clear where they landed. The Golan Heights is under Israeli government control and is considered to be occupied territory by the international community.
