Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has invited opposition leader Yair Lapid for a security briefing, his office says in a brief statement.

The update would come as tensions soared across the region, with a rocket attack from Syria tonight; a barrage of rockets from Lebanon on Thursday; tit-for-tat rocket fire from the Gaza Strip and Israeli strikes over the past week; clashes at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Temple Mount; deadly terror attacks in Israel and the West Bank; as well as a suspected Iranian drone launched from Syria earlier in the week.
