Terrorists in Syria fired three rockets at the Golan Heights on Tuesday, one of which landed in Israeli-controlled territory, the Israel Defense Forces said.

One enemy rocket struck an open area near Moshav Alonei Habashan in the central Golan Heights, while the other rockets fell short inside Syria, according to the military.

The IDF responded by shelling the source of the fire.

On Sunday night, Israeli Air Force fighter jets struck several targets in and around Damascus, causing material damage.

Syria’s state-run SANA news agency cited a military source as saying that air defenses “repelled” the attack by downing Israeli missiles, a common claim that most analysts dismiss as bluster.

On Friday, four people were reportedly killed by an alleged Israeli drone strike on a vehicle near the border. Hezbollah said three of its operatives were killed, including Hassan Ali Dakdouk, the son of Ali Mussa Dakdouk, who oversees the terror group’s operations in southern Syria.

On Thursday, the IAF attacked targets south of Damascus in response to rocket fire launched from Syria. The Sham FM radio station, which supports the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, said that explosions were heard in the “southwestern Damascus countryside” as well as in the area of Quneitra, near the border with the Jewish state.

Also on Thursday, air-raid sirens warned of incoming rockets in the Israeli part of the Golan Heights. Army Radio reported that several projectiles hit an open area in the Druze town of Buq’ata.

Earlier this month, alleged Israeli strikes near Damascus killed two Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps officers.

Israel has struck hundreds of targets in Syria in recent years as part of an effort to prevent Iranian military entrenchment in the country. However, Jerusalem rarely acknowledges these incidents.
