Explosions heard overnight between Thursday and Friday in central Israel and the coastal plain region appeared early Friday to have been the echoes of an anti-aircraft missile fired from Syria toward Israel that exploded over the Mediterranean Sea.
As per the IDF’s policy, no incoming missile alert was triggered, as the missile posed no risk to people or property.
