One of the six missiles that were fired from Syrian territory at Israel, according to the Israeli military, fell in the Golan Heights, which Israel has seized.

A number of rockets were fired from Syrian territory towards northern Israel, but none of them hit Israel or resulted in any injuries or damage, according to the Israeli military, which claims to have started artillery operations on Syria.

Early on Sunday, there were cross-border clashes as Israel intensified its hostilities on a number of fronts, including in Gaza, Lebanon, occupied East Jerusalem, and the occupied West Bank.

The Syrian government did not respond right away.

The Israeli military claimed to have attacked the Syrian missile launchers with artillery and a drone.

In the early hours of Sunday, there were two missile launches from Syrian territory, according to the report. The first incident comprised three rockets, one of which landed in a field on the Golan Heights, which Israel had seized.

Three rockets were used in the second attack, which again triggered sirens in northern Israel. There were no casualty reports. According to the Jordanian army, rocket fragments that fell on its soil did not result in any injuries or property damage.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement’s armed wing, the al-Quds Brigades, claimed responsibility for the rocket launches, according to Lebanon-based Al Mayadeen TV.

The rocket fire from Syria comes against the backdrop of soaring Israeli-Palestinian tensions triggered by Israeli police raids on the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in which police fired stun grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets at Palestinian worshippers gathered for Ramadan prayers.

The Temple Mount, a place of pilgrimage for both Muslims and Jews in Jerusalem’s Old City, has a long history of conflict, particularly when Jewish tourists disobey a ban on non-Muslim prayer there.

The raids occurred when religious fervor was at its peak since Ramadan fell on the same day as Passover, a Jewish festival, and Easter, a Christian holiday. Armed groups in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip launched a barrage of rockets into Israel in response to the violent images from the strikes that infuriated Palestinians who were observing the holy month of Ramadan and called for fasting.

The Israeli military then targeted a number of locations in southern Lebanon and Gaza that it said belonged to the Palestinian organization Hamas.

Levy also pointed out that since the deadly earthquakes that struck northern Syria and southern Turkey on February 6, Israel has launched hundreds of attacks against what it claims are Iran-linked groups in Syria, bombing ports and airports, including the main Aleppo facility that had served as a conduit for aid shipments.

“Neither a public debate nor any information regarding the raids in Syria is there in Israel. Nobody is aware of the reason, the form, or the cost, according to Levy.

One thing is obvious. Israel is interfering with Syrian sovereignty and provoking Iran. How much longer will the Iranians and Syrians put up with this?

Israel has also been on edge following a Friday car ramming in Tel Aviv that left an Italian man dead and five other visitors injured. The Tel Aviv attack happened hours after a Palestinian man in the occupied West Bank shot and killed two Israeli sisters and injured their mother in close proximity to an illegal Israeli outpost.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant has prolonged a closure preventing Palestinians from entering Israel from the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip for the duration of Passover, and police have increased their presence in Jerusalem on the eve of delicate religious rituals amid the escalation.

On Friday and Saturday, however, mass prayers were authorized in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

On Sunday, when tens of thousands of Jews are anticipated to assemble at the Western Wall in the Al-Aqsa compound for the special Passover priestly blessing, more than 2,000 police officers will be stationed in Jerusalem.
