Israel attacks launch site in Lebanon after rockets ‘fired’

Israeli forces have struck an area of Lebanon from which a cross-border rocket launch was carried, its military said.

The statement said a rocket fired earlier on Thursday from within Lebanon had exploded within Israeli territory.“In response, the IDF (Israeli military) is currently striking the area from which the launch was carried out in Lebanese territory,” the military statement said.

A previous statement by the military had said there were no preliminary findings of any unusual events on Israel’s side of the border.

Lebanon’s state news agency ANI said Israel had fired “more than 15 artillery shells” which hit around the communities of Kfar Chouba and Halta.

There was no claim of responsibility for the reported rocket fire and no immediate comment from the Lebanese army.
