A salvo of rockets have been fired from southern Lebanon towards Israel, as tensions mount in the border region where Israeli forces and armed factions in Lebanon have exchanged fire over the last three days.
It has been reported on Tuesday that a number of rockets had been fired towards Israel, with Palestinian factions said to have carried out the action.
The UN peacekeeping force in the area, known as UNFIL, said that it was working to verify reports of rocket fire. Israeli forces responded to the missiles with artillery fire.
“In response to the launches identified from Lebanese territory toward Israeli territory, IDF soldiers are currently responding with artillery fire,” a statement from the Israeli military said.
