Rocket warning sirens sounded in northern Israel on Wednesday, the Israeli military said.

On Twitter, the military said it was checking whether any attack had taken place.

The sirens sounded near the Israeli town of Umm el Fahm, about 80 kilometres (50 miles) north of Jerusalem, and in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, the military said.

The alert came at about the same time that Syrian state television said that Syrian air defences had confronted "hostile targets" over Damascus.

Syrian air defences shot down a number of "Israeli aggression's missiles" around the Syrian capital, state TV said.

There was no immediate information on damages or casualties.
