Rocket Sirens Sound in the Golan Heights

Incoming rocket sirens have sounded in the Golan Heights, apparently in response to Israeli strikes against Iranian targets in Syria:

Incoming rocket sirens were activated early Thursday morning in Israel’s northern Golan Heights hours after the IDF was reported to have carried out strikes against Iranian targets in Syria.

The sirens were heard in the communities of Majdal Shams, Neve Ativ, Nimrod, Masa’ade, Buqa’ata, Odem, and El Rom; so far there have been no indications of an explosion in Israeli territory.

On Tuesday night the military instructed local governments to open bomb shelters to residents of the Golan Heights following the identification of “abnormal movements of Iranian forces in Syria.”

The army has it raised preparedness of “troops for an attack” and deployed air defenses in the several locations in the north of the country.

In this time of heightened tensions, please pray for Israel’s peace and protection.
