Four Rockets Hit Northern Israel

At least four Katyusha rockets were fired from Lebanon at northern Israel on Monday night. The Israel Defense Forces responded soon after, firing a number of artillery shells at “the source of fire,” in southern Lebanon. There were no injuries, but some building sustained damage. At this time figher fighters are still combating the blaze caused by the rockets.

Police and IDF forces are scanning the area in search of more rockets. Up to this point the police could only confirm two rockets had fallen. The Police Northern District raised its alertness level but did not issue instructions for residents of northern Israel to go into bomb shelters. The IDF said the incident is serious and that the responsibility for stopping the fire lay with the Lebanese government.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah hinted earlier this month that an Israeli attack on Iran or Western military involvement in Syria would lead to confrontation between Hezbollah and Israel. “I’m not issuing threats, but it’s plain to see that an Israel-American attack on Iran or military involvement in Syria will lead to a regional war,” Nasrallah said.
