Five Syrian rockets exploded on the Golan before dawn Saturday, triggering sirens at Katzrin, Givat Yoev, Geshur, Kfar Horev, Mevo Hama, Meitzar, Neot Golan, Nov and Ramat Magshimim. There were no casualties or damage. The IDF retaliated by hitting three Syrian artillery positions, announcing, “Even spillover fire from Syrian warfare, if it encroaches on sovereign Israeli territory and hazards the security of its citizens, will not be tolerated and the Syrian regime will be held to account.”
