A Military source said on Thursday that at 6.30 P.M. an Israeli hostile helicopter launched several missiles towards the Syrian lands, targeting Transport directorate and the governorate building in Qunaitera, causing only material damages, SANA reports.

The Zionist Helicopters on Thursday fired rockets to an area in Syria’s southwestern province of Quneitra after the occupation military claimed four rockets fired from the Syrian soil hit the northern occupied territories.

The fresh airstrikes against Syria came after the Israeli military said in a statement earlier Thursday that “four rockets were launched from the Syrian Golan Heights, landing in the Upper Galilee” mountainous area near the Lebanese border and the Israeli-occupied side of Golan, Al-Manar News Agency reports.

A one-line statement posted on the Twitter account of the Israeli occupation forces said no injuries were reported.

Israeli media had issued conflicting reports about the number and origin of the rockets. Initial reports had said only two rockets were fired, and they came from Lebanon.

Ynet news said in its latest report that two rockets landed in Galilee and two others in the Israeli-side of the occupied Golan Heights.

“The rockets prompted alert sirens in several locations in north Israel,” the report said.

The alert comes on the same day that ‘Israel’ announced it had deployed its Iron Dome system in the south in response to warnings, Ynet reported.

The Israeli army also released a statement, saying, "This was the work of (Palestinian) Islamic Jihad...and we consider the Syrian government responsible for the firing and it will suffer the consequences." But the resistance movement rebuffed the Israeli claims denying these allegations.
