Rockets were fired at northern Israel from Lebanon today and Israel's army responded with artillery fire, Lebanese security sources and the Israeli military said, in the second such incident in two days.
"Initial reports indicate that at least two rockets fired from Lebanon hit open areas north of Nahariya. No damage or injuries, thus far," an Israeli military statement said, adding that Israeli forces had fired artillery toward the source of the rocket fire.
A Lebanese security source said three rockets had been fired from Lebanon.
