Two explosive-laden drones launched by Hezbollah from Lebanon a few hours ago impacted in the northern Golan Heights, the military says.

One of the drone impacts sparked a fire near the northern community of Sha’al, which was extinguished a short while later.

The IDF says several interceptor missiles were launched at the drones, although this failed to down the two devices.

As a result of the interception attempts, a fire was sparked in the Safed area. Firefighters are working to extinguish the blaze.

The IDF says the incident is under further investigation.

Also today, two rockets launched from Lebanon at the Mount Hermon area hit open areas, the military says.

Meanwhile, several of the sirens that sounded in Kiryat Shmona and in the Upper Galilee in recent hours have been determined to be false alarms, the IDF adds.

The IDF also says it struck a Hezbollah rocket launcher and a building used by the terror group in Aitaroun, Lebanon, and another building in Ayta ash-Shab.
