Rockets Land Near Lebanon Border

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

The IDF responded with artillery fire aimed at the source of two rockets launched from Lebanon on Monday night, and Israel lodged a complaint with the UNIFIL peacekeeping forces on Tuesday, according to media reports.

The rockets landed near a moshav in northern Israel, setting off sirens in the region. Local residents heard loud explosions, but b’chasdei Shamayim, there were no injuries or damage to property.

On Tuesday, Lebanon’s National News Agency reported that the Lebanese Army “found the three platforms used in firing Katyusha rockets on northern occupied Palestine.”

Kiryat Shmona municipal spokesperson Doron Shenfer said the IDF had not issued a directive to unlock bomb shelters, but that Mayor Nissim Malka directed residents to stay in safe rooms and to open the municipality’s war room.

Lebanese news media said Monday night that large Lebanese Army forces were searching for the perpetrators in the Wadi Litani area, from where the rockets were apparently fired at Israel.

No organization has taken responsibility for the attack, but there is speculation that Palestinian organizations operating in Lebanon were likely the culprits.
