Israeli forces responded to attacks from the Land of the Cedars.
Terrorists in Lebanon fired a salvo of rockets at northern Israel on Thursday evening, setting off air raid sirens in Kiryat Shmona and the Upper Galilee region.
“Following the initial report of alerts in the northern region, about ten launches were identified that crossed from Lebanese territory into Israeli territory,” the Israel Defense Forces said.
“The IDF is attacking in Lebanese territory in response to the shooting,” added the statement.
The incident came an hour after three rockets from Lebanon hit the city of Kiryat Shmona, which has largely been evacuated due to the incessant threat from Lebanon.
One rocket hit an abandoned apartment building, causing a fire, Army Radio reported.
The Al-Fajr Forces, an affiliate of the Lebanese branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, took responsibility for the attack, Hebrew media reported. In addition, Hamas in Lebanon took responsibility for firing rockets towards the area of Nahariya.
