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.
