Two rockets fired at Israel from Lebanon…One shot interception
Two rockets were fired at Israel on Tuesday in Lebanon, a Middle Eastern country near the Mediterranean Sea, local media reported.
The Israeli military said two rockets were fired from southern Lebanon toward northern Israel early in the day, raising an alarm in the western part of Galilee near the border.
The military said one of the two rockets was intercepted, the other fell out of habitation, and there were no casualties.
The Israeli military also believed the attack was caused by Palestinian factions in Lebanon and responded with artillery targeting the launch site.
Israel fought a war with Iran-backed Lebanese militant Hezbollah in 2006.
Since then, there has been no skirmish with Hezbollah, and small Palestinian factions in Lebanon have attacked Israel with mortars or rockets.
Palestinian factions in Lebanon attacked at the border when Hamas and Israel fought an 11-day war in May.
