Explosions were heard in the Golan Heights near the border between Israel and Syria on the Syrian side, the IDF Spokesperson’s Office reported Friday afternoon.

An anti-aircraft missile was fired at an IAF aircraft from over the Syrian border, as shrapnel landed in Israeli territory, causing damage to a civilian building and vehicle.

The IDF spokesperson released a statement, saying “a short while ago, explosions were heard adjacent to the security fence from the Syrian side of the border,” and confirmed damage “likely caused by fragments.”
