Five rockets from Syria landed across the border with Israel in the Golan Heights overnight between Saturday and Sunday.

The rockets landed in open areas and no injuries were initially reported. Multiple alert sirens sounded in the Golan Regional Council warning of the attack.

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.

Lebanon's official National News Agency, citing its correspondent in Tyre, 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.

Last month, two Katyusha rockets launched from Lebanon landed in open territory outside Nahariya. IDF artillery responded by targeting the launch site in Lebanon.
