Israeli soldiers praying as IDF forces seen reinforcing presence in the Golan Heights in northern Israel.

Two missiles exploded in the northern Golan Heights Tuesday afternoon, and the IDF has returned artillery fire into Syrian territory.

The army is trying to determine where the missiles landed. It is not known if the missiles were misfired or were aimed at Israel. Unconfirmed reports said four rockets were launched at Israel.


Sirens sounded to warn residents, who rushed to bomb shelters.

The IDF ordered an immediate closure of the Hermon ski area, and approximately 1,000 visitors are evacuating.

The IDF has deployed the Iron Dome system in the area because of extreme threats from Hezbollah to attack the north. The army also has placed cement barriers along roads near the Lebanese border following fears of missile attacks at passing cars,

Soldiers spotted suspicious figures approaching the border fence two days ago, Ground units were sent into actions and roads were closed until the security alert was lifted.
