"A short while ago a projectile fired from Syria was intercepted by the Iron Dome aerial defense system. No injuries were reported," the IDF said in its official twitter account.
An additional projectile was intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system a short while later, according to the IDF.
The IDF did not specify any retaliatory measures. Similar previous incidents resulted in retaliation by Israeli military aircraft. On Tuesday, the Israel Air Force (IAF) attacked Syrian artillery positions in the Golan Heights amid a sharp rise in cross-border shooting incidents.
Hostilities between Israeli and Syrian forces escalated early Tuesday after the Syrian military said it had downed an Israeli warplane and a drone in retaliation for the latest airstrikes.
