Several shells have reportedly hit the Syrian governorate of Quneitra, launched from the Israeli-occupied portion of the Golan Heights. Air raid sirens were reported going off in the Israeli-controlled area around the same time.
The shells were fired from the Israeli-controlled area towards the city of Baath in northern Quneitra, Syria’s state SANA news agency reported. There have been no reports of injuries as a result of the attack, it said.
Within minutes of the reported shelling, the Israeli military said that sirens were heard in the occupied Golan Heights, without providing any details as to what triggered the alert.
“The details are being looked into and will be given shortly,” the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) wrote on Twitter.
It is unclear so far which of the incidents came first.
