Rockets fired from Lebanon into Israel

Text size Aa Aa

Several rockets have been fired from southern Lebanon towards western Galilee.

Israeli military sources say one was intercepted by an antimissile shield and two or three others fell outside Israel. One is believed to have hit a built-up area in the north of Israel.

There were no reports of any casualties

Israel says the rockets were launched from the Lebanese village of Qlayle, in an area that serves as a stronghold for the Hezbollah guerrilla group. It blamed the attack on a “global jihadi organisation”

No group has yet claimed responsibility.

Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened that “anyone who tries to attack us should know that we will hurt them.”
