Israel's military, however, said Tuesday its forces were on high alert near its border with Syria after spotting Iranian activity and was urging civilians in the Golan Heights near Syria to prepare bomb shelters. There were no Israeli casualties.

"The IDF sees this Iranian attack on Israel with severity", a spokesperson for the military Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said. Iran has vowed revenge after blaming Israel for a series of deadly airstrikes on Iranian positions in Syria.

Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the missiles had targeted a weapons depot in Kissweh, "presumably belonging to Hezbollah and the Iranians". There are no immediate reports of airstrikes.

Israel has neither confirmed or denied responsibility.

Syria accused Israel of launching an airstrike against a military installation near Damascus overnight in which eight Iranians were allegedly killed, Ynet reported Wednesday.

Israel has posted Iron Dome short-range air defences on the Golan, local media said, suggesting that the anticipated attack could be by ground-to-ground rockets or mortars.
