After hearing a rocket siren on Thursday afternoon, Golan Heights residents claimed that they witnessed an Iron Dome interception and heard loud explosions. On May 10, Israel said Iranian forces in Syria fired rockets at it, but they were intercepted by its Iron Dome defence system.

"Following reports regarding sirens in the Golan regional council, it appears to have been a false alarm". According to the report, four missiles were shot down missile defense system "Iron dome". The circumstances are being looked into.

The Israel Defense Forces said the Iron Dome was activated but it later turned out to be a false alarm. The incident is being investigated a spokesman said

An army spokesman said after the attack that the situation was "not over" and Syrian state media reported that the country's air defense systems were firing at "Israeli missiles" at around 1.45am local time.

IDF soldiers and other security personnel searched the area to see whether any missiles landed on the Israeli side of the border with Syria, but no landings were found.

In response to the attack, the IDF launched a series of strikes on targets in Syria.
