Up to four rockets have been launched at Northern Israel from Lebanese soil. Israeli Defense Forces confirmed the Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted one of the rockets. No injuries have been reported.

The rockets were allegedly fired from a town near Tyre in southern Lebanon to the north towards Israel.

“One rocket was intercepted between Acre and Nahariya,”
 IDF Spokesman Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai said. “All other rockets fell outside of Israeli territory.”

The IDF has suggested that the other three may have fallen into the sea or in Lebanese territory and did not hit Israel.

“At this point, no rockets have exploded on Israeli land,”
 Mordechai said.

Lebanese sources said that four Katyusha rockets were launched at Israel, with the smoke being seen in Tyre.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, while Israeli army suspects global jihad operatives or Hezbollah, Haaretz reports.
