breaking news the961

Four rockets were fired towards Israel from Lebanon.

The rockets were fired from the south of Lebanon amid escalating fighting between Israel and Palestinian Hamas in Gaza.

Lebanese security officials said the rockets were launched from Qlayleh area north of Naqoura, in the south of Lebanon – near the border with Israel.

Sources close to Hezbollah denied having any links to the attack.

Israeli army confirmed the attack in a statement, reporting the rockets to have landed in the sea.

“A short while ago, three rockets were fired from Lebanon into the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of the Galilee,” Israel’s army said in a statement. “According to protocol no sirens were sounded,” it added.

Conflicting media reports as some said Lebanese security forces arrested those who had fired the rockets while others, such as Al-Jadeed, said no arrests were made. The Lebanese Army has been deployed in the area and was last reported chasing down several suspects.

A Palestinian official told An-Nahar newspaper that Palestinian factions were behind the rockets.

Israeli warplanes flew over south Lebanon after the attack but Al-Arabiya quoted Israeli sources saying there will be no Israeli response.
