Hezbollah Fires Dozens Of Rockets At N. Israel

JERUSALEM/BEIRUT, Apr 13 (NNN-MA’AN/NNA) – About 40 rockets were fired from Lebanon at northern Israel, Friday night, following Israeli airstrikes in southern Lebanon, Israel military said.

The rockets triggered sirens in multiple communities across the Upper Galilee in northern Israel.

Israel Defence Forces (IDF) Spokesman, Daniel Hagar, told a press briefing that most of the rockets fell in open fields, causing no injuries.

Lebanese military group, Hezbollah, confirmed in a statement yesterday, firing dozens of Katyusha rockets on the Al-Zaoura site, in the occupied territories.

Hezbollah said, the rockets were fired in response to Israel’s airstrikes on the villages of Aita al-Shaab and Al-Taybeh earlier in the evening.

According to an Israeli military statement, the strikes targeted military compounds belonging to Hezbollah.

Also yesterday, two Hezbollah drones carrying explosives that had crossed from Lebanon into Israeli territory were intercepted.

The cross-border fire came, amid heightened alert in Israel, awaiting an Iranian retaliation for the killing of seven Iranian commanders in Syria, in an Israeli airstrike on Apr 1.
