Rockets Fired on Northern Israel; IDF Denies Retaliation
At least four rockets were fired from Lebanon Thursday afternoon, with at least one confirmed as having struck in the area of Nahariya.
Several residents have been treated for shock.
IDF Radio reported that bomb shelters in the northern city of Akko (Acre) have been opened for public use, and the IDF is urging residents of the north to remain close to shelters.
The IDF has denied earlier reports from Arabic media that it responded to the rockets with artillery fire.
Lebanese media has been reporting that at least 2 of the rockets were fired from the Ras al-Ain neighborhood of the city of Tyre.
According to initial reports, one rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, while three others struck in "open areas."
