Israel's Iron Dome air defence system shot down a rocket that had been fired at the Golan Heights on Sunday, the press service of the Israeli army said.

The military did not specify where the missile had been launched from.
Israel and Syria have been at loggerheads over the disputed Golan Heights. Israel occupied the area as a result of the 1967 Six-Day War with Syria, and annexed the territory in 1981. The annexation was never officially recognised by the international community.
Israel and Syria still remain at war as a result of the conflict and the lack of formal diplomatic relations between the two states.
