A missile landed in south Lebanon during a major military flare-up between Israeli, Iranian and Syrian forces in Syria overnight, Lebanon's National News Agency said.

"A surface-to-surface missile landed at dawn in the vicinity of the town of al-Hibbariyeh, during the exchange of fire between the Syrian forces and the Israeli enemy," NNA said.

The projectile only caused material damage, the agency added.

It later reported that Lebanese Army experts had examined the exploded missile before transfering it to a military post.

LBCI meanwhile reported that another missile had landed in the Bekaa town of Qab Elias near a Syrian refugee encampment.

Dozens of rockets were fired from Syria on the Israeli-occupied Golan overnight, a war monitor said Thursday, without confirming Israeli reports they were fired by Iranian forces.

"After the first Israeli bombardment on the town of Baath, dozens of rockets were launched from Quneitra and the southwest of the adjacent Damascus countryside on the occupied part of the Golan Heights," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

It did not specify who fired the rockets nor what they targeted, but Israeli officials earlier put the number of rockets at around 20 and said they were launched by the Al-Quds force of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards.

Israel said it was in retaliation for Iranian rocket fire from the Quneitra area that it launched missile strikes on Iranian military infrastructure in Syria.
