At least one rocket fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel two nights after a similar attack.

The rocket fired late Monday night is reported to have landed in an open area near the Upper Galilee city of Kiryat Shemona, though the military has not confirmed the exact location. No injuries or damage were reported.

Israel responded with artillery to the area of the attack, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Late Saturday night, a rocket fired from Lebanon landed on an empty house in the Upper Galilee. Israeli media reported that two children were injured.

Israel did not return fire but lodged a protest with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon.
