3 rockets fired from Syria after Israel beefs up its forces

Three rockets were fired from Syria late Saturday after Tel Aviv beefed up Israel Defense Forces following attacks that killed three people, including an Italian tourist, and earlier rocket fire from Lebanon, reported Jerusalem Post.
One of the Syria rockets landed in Israeli territory and fell in “an open area in the southern Golan Heights,” the IDF said. On Saturday night the focus shifted to Jerusalem’s Old City as security forces fear further unrest could break out on Sunday when Jewish worshipers are expected to flock to the Western Wall for the priestly blessings that take place on Passover, reported Jerusalem Post.
Jewish visitors are also expected to ascend the Temple Mount, known to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif. An additional 2,300 police troops have been deployed throughout the city.
