According to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, a rocket fired from Syria on Monday exploded in an open area near an Israeli town in the Golan Heights. Also on Monday, more rockets were fired at Israel from Lebanon, with the IDF responding with artillery fire. It was the third rocket attack from Lebanon since Friday.
