Two rockets were fired from Lebanon overnight on Tuesday setting off sirens in northern Israel but causing no damage or injuries, the Israeli military said.
One of the rockets was shot down by missile defenses and the other landed in an open area, the military said.
Syria’s air defenses intercepted an Israeli attack on the Al-Safirah area in Aleppo’s southern countryside earlier on Tuesday, according to Syrian state media.
Syrian opposition forces said in a statement the attack targeted Iranian Revolutionary Guard bases and a weapons plant in an area where Iranian military research and development activities have been disrupted by repeated Israeli strikes in the last year.
Hezbollah guerrillas with sway in southern Lebanon and sophisticated rockets fought Israel in a 2006 war. Since then, the border has been fairly quiet.
Small Palestinian factions in Lebanon have fired sporadically on Israel in the past.
