4 rockets from Syria hit Israel, Golan: military

Jerusalem: Four rockets fired from war-wracked Syria struck northern Israel and the occupied Golan Heights today, causing fires but no injuries, the Israeli military and security sources said.

“Four rockets were launched from the Syrian Golan Heights, landing in the Upper Galilee and the Israeli Golan Heights,” the military said in a statement. “No injuries have been reported.”

Security sources said the rockets sparked fires.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon visited northern Israel on Tuesday to meet military officials.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the Golan from neighbouring Syria in the 1967 Middle East war.
