JERUSALEM, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Five rockets fired from Syria hit the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights overnight between Saturday and Sunday, the Israeli military said in a statement.
Israel's Ynet website news said that three rockets exploded in a settlement in the northern Golan Heights and two have hit an open space. No injuries or damages were immediately reported.
The rocket salvo was fired only a few hours after a rocket fired from southern Lebanon hit the Upper Galilee in northern Israel. A spokesperson with the police said that the rocket hit an empty building in an open area, with two children lightly wounded.
No group has immediately claimed responsibility for both incidents.
The unexpected fires come as a deadly war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza enters its 48 day and as the death toll in Gaza climbed to more than 2,100, according to Palestinian health officials.
Over the past years, there has been relative calm in the Israel 's northern border with sporadic fire trades.
