No injuries or damage reported as two missiles land near Hermon ski resort; army returns fire

(SOURCE)   Air raid sirens went off in the northern Golan Heights on Tuesday as at least two rockets landed in the Israeli-controlled region. No injuries or damage were reported.

The rockets were reportedly launched from Syrian territory, but it wasn’t immediately clear who was responsible or whether it was an intentional attack on Israeli territory.

The IDF confirmed that at least two rockets had hit the northern Golan Heights and a spokesperson said that the Mount Hermon ski slopes were being evacuated. Some reports said as many as four missiles were fired.
