JERUSALEM – Two rockets were fired from Lebanon into northern Israel early Tuesday morning, firing sirens in the north of the country, the Israeli army said.
One of the rockets was shot down by Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system and the other landed in an open area, causing no damage, the military said. He did not say who he blamed for firing the rockets or what retaliatory measures, if any, he could take.
“We remain prepared to defend Israel on all fronts,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a Twitter post in your official account.
On Monday night, Syria’s air defenses intercepted an Israeli strike in an area of southern Aleppo, Syrian state media reported, in an area where Israel has repeatedly targeted a growing Iranian presence, according to Reuters.
A Syrian military spokesman told state media that the damage was being assessed after the air defenses shot down most of the missiles.
