Rockets explode in Golan Heights; no injuries reported


TEL AVIV (JTA) — Two rockets landed in the Golan Heights near the Syrian border.

It was unclear who shot the rockets on Tuesday afternoon, according to Israeli reports. No injuries were reported.

In response, the Israeli army shot artillery fire into Syria and heightened security in the area.

The rockets follow a Jan. 18 strike on Hezbollah operatives in Syria that killed an Iranian general. Senior commanders of Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based terrorist group, were also among the 12 people killed in the strike.

Israel is widely believed to have executed the strike, though Israeli officials have not commented on it.
