Israel, Lebanon trade rocket fire near border

Lebanon-Palestine-BorderAt least two rockets fired from south Lebanon have hit northern Israel, drawing Israeli retaliatory fire, security sources say.
The sources told The Daily Star the rockets were fired from the Hasbaya region – one shortly after midnight and the other at dawn – a few hours after a failed attempt to fire a similar rocket into Israel.
The Israeli army said a projectile fired from Lebanon struck northern Israel early Friday causing no harm or damages.
“One projectile hit an open space near Kfar Yuval, between (northern Israeli towns) Metula and Kiryat Shmona,” a military spokeswoman told AFP, adding the army did not yet know whether it was a mortar shell or a rocket.
The security sources said Israel responded by firing eight rockets on Kfar Shouba hills.
The rocket attack from south Lebanon came as Israel pressed ahead for a fourth day with an offensive against the Gaza Strip.
