Air raid sirens, which are used to inform civilians that rocket attacks are incoming, were heard in the Golan Heights Saturday during early morning hours.

This happened shortly after sirens were heard in and around Beit She’an and nearby towns.

Golan Heights residents are reporting they are hearing the sounds of distant explosions.

Beit She’an residents reported seeing Israeli Air Force jets flying overhead.

The IDF spokesperson unit told the Jerusalem Post that no rockets had been fired in the Beit She’an area but declined to comment at the moment about any actions taken by the Air Force in the Golan Heights or near the Jordanian border.
