Israeli Air Force fighter jets have been raiding areas in Lebanon from where rockets were fired at Israeli territory on Wednesday, the Israeli army said in the early hours of this morning.
"Earlier (…) rockets were fired from Lebanon into Israeli territory. "In response, they hit the positions from where they were fired and infrastructure used by terrorist organizations in Lebanon," the Israeli army said in a statement.
Shortly after the launch of at least three rockets yesterday at noon, the Israeli army announced that it had retaliated with artillery fire against Lebanese territory.
Israeli first aid services confirmed that there were no casualties.
Sirens sounded for an impending rocket attack on Israeli communities near the Lebanese border, including Kiryat Simona.
The border area between the two countries remains relatively calm after the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah. However, small Palestinian groups have occasionally fired rockets at Israeli territory from northern Lebanon, with the Israeli army retaliating, usually firing artillery fire.
