Two rockets fired from Syria hit the Golan Heights in Israel.

The rockets, which landed in the southern Golan Heights on Monday afternoon, caused no damage or injuries.

They "were fired erroneously as a byproduct of internal conflict in Syria," the Israel Defense Forces said in a tweet.

Rebels and the Syrian army reportedly battled Monday in Syrian villages near the border with Israel.

Another rocket landed in the demilitarized zone of the Golan, according to reports.

Israel filed a complaint on Monday over the rocket fire with the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force.

The rockets came a day after an alleged Israeli attack on a target in Damascus.
