Rockets Fired from Lebanon at Israel, IDF Responds


israel-lebanon-borderFive rockets were fired this morning from Lebanon at Israel. In a statement, the IDf said, “The attack is an inexcusable and blatant violation of Israel’s sovereignty.”

Residents of Israel’s north woke up this morning to five rockets fired from Lebanon into Israel. One of the rockets landed west of Kiryat Shmona, near the border. IDF forces responded with artillery fire toward the source of the launch.

At least five rockets were fired from Lebanon, with one confirmed explosion in Israel. The IDF is currently searching for evidence of others.

In response to the attack, an official complaint was filed to UNIFIL, the United Nations force charged with maintaining security in Southern Lebanon and preventing hostilities against Israel.

“Launching rockets from Lebanon into Israel jeopardizes thousands of civilian lives in the north, a reality no sovereign state would accept,” the IDF said. “The IDF maintains the right to self defense and will continue to operate accordingly.”
