The Israeli military said its Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted some of the incoming projectiles, while others caused only minimal damage.
As Syrian President Bashar Assad’s fight against Islamic State draws to a close, violence has exploded in other areas, threatening an even broader confrontation among regional and world powers.
The attacks were a response to an Iranian drone incursion. Israeli officials are concerned that Iran is establishing a permanent presence in Syria that could turn its aim toward Israel.
“Iran seeks to use Syrian territory to attack Israel for its professed goal of destroying Israel,” Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu said, vowing that his country would do “whatever is necessary" in defense.
