Israel has launched artillery attack and airstrikes on the Syrian army positions. Tel Aviv says the attacks were in response to rocket fire from the Golan Heights. The Israeli army said four rockets landed in the Upper Galilee region and the Israeli-occupied parts of the Golan Heights. The rockets reportedly caused fires, but no injuries. Earlier, sirens sounded in several Israeli towns near the Lebanese border. Israel seized 12-hundred square kilometers of the Golan from neighboring Syria in 19-67. Israel is also accused of backing militants fighting against the Syrian government.
