Israel attacks southern Lebanon in response to a rocket

The Israeli army said it attacked Lebanon with artillery fire early Monday after a rocket was fired into Israel.

The army said the rocket had landed in an open space in northern Israel, causing no damage or injuries. But shortly after, he said he had hit “the origin of the launched projectile and an infrastructure target in southern Lebanon.” “Routine activity” was continuing in northern Israel, the army said.

No one claimed responsibility for launching the rocket at first.

Israel and the Lebanese armed group Hezbollah are bitter enemies who fought a month-long war in 2006 that ended with no clear winner. Tension has continued in the border area, although without major incidents.

Small Palestinian groups, suspected in several rocket attacks in recent years, also operate in Lebanon.

Monday’s event came at a time of heightened tensions in Israel following a series of attacks inside the country, raids in the occupied West Bank and rocket attacks on Israel from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. It has been the most violent time in the region since the 11-day war between Israel and Gaza militants last year.
