3:08 A second rocket alert has gone off on the Golan Heights.

Again it is believed the rocket landed on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

2:41 PM A rocket alert just sounded on the Golan Heights.

Apparently there is fighting on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, next to the border with Israel.

It appears that no rocket landed in Israeli territory, but something was launched close by that set off the rocket alert.

Explosions from the fighting can be heard in Majdal Shams.

Rocket alert sirens sounded in several communities throughout the northern Golan Heights on Sunday afternoon.

It was not immediately clear if any rockets or mortar shells landed in Israeli territory.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in the incident.

Earlier on Sunday, on the Gaza front, rocket alert sirens went off in communities in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council. The IDF said no rockets fell inside Israel and was looking into what triggered the sirens.

The rocket sirens in the Golan Heights came amid heavy fighting between rebels and the Assad regime on the Syrian side of the border.

Spillover from the Syrian infighting, in the form of mortar shells landing in Israeli territory, have often set off rocket alert sirens.
