Rockets fired from Syria and Lebanon struck northern Israel.

At least five rockets fired from Syria landed in areas across the Golan Heights early Sunday morning, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed.

No one was injured in the rocket attack from Syria, which occurred at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday amid a series of Code Red rocket alerts.

Late on Saturday night, a rocket fired from Lebanon landed on an empty house in the upper Galilee region of northern Israel; Israeli media reported that two children were injured in the attack. Israel did not return fire, but lodged a protest with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon.
