Israel closed roads and airspace over Syria's occupied Golan Heights on Wednesday due to military exercises.

Iran Press/Middle East: Israeli army intermittently closed the airspace and some land roads in the Golan's Katzrin area as part of military exercises.

The Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth, citing military sources, said the closure will continue until Thursday.
