In July, a rocket was fired from Syria but, according to the IDF Spokesperson, it exploded on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights and did not hit Israeli territory.
That incident came a few days a mortar shell from Syria was fired towards the Israeli side of the Golan Heights and exploded near the Druze village of Mas’ade.
The attack comes several hours after a rocket was fired from Lebanon and struck the Upper Galilee.
No physical injuries or damage were reported.
Following the attack, Israel fired mortar shells towards the source of the fire in southern Lebanon.
The projectile strike from Syria came hours after a separate incident on Saturday night in which a rocket fired from Lebanon hit a building in an open area in the Upper Galilee.
Two children were lightly injured by shrapnel and four people were suffering from shock as a result of the attack.
The news agency NNA, citing its correspondent in Tire, said the rockets were fired towards Israel and that the Lebanese army had encircled the suspected launch area.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
Just one question to those of you reading from abroad: Would you want to live like this? Well, we don't either. And this has nothing to do with borders. It has to do with our existence.
