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.
A spokesman for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said earlier the Iranian Quds forces had fired at least 20 missiles at Israel's forward positions on the Golan Heights shortly after midnight on Thursday.

Amos Gilead, a retired senior Israeli defense official, told a security conference in the coastal town of Herzliya that Iran's intentions in Syria meant a wider conflagration may only be a matter of time.

Syrian air defences fired at two Israeli missiles, destroying both, SANA said.
Israel took control over the Golan Heights that had belonged by Syria from 1944 after the Six-Day War in 1967. The latest attack, carried out on May 9, claimed the lives of seven Iranians in the Syrian air force base T4.

According to a pro-Syrian regime news outlet called al-Mayadeen, any further strikes will be met by "larger" attacks on Israel.
