Israeli forces retaliate following missile attack from Lebanon

Israeli forces have reportedly opened artillery fire towards Lebanon following the launch of Katuysha missiles into Northern Israel from South Lebanon.

Reports say that at least three missiles were fired from Lebanon into an area near the coastal city of Nahariya, with one intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system and at least two landing in uninhabited areas.

Missiles are a key tactic of the Lebanese Hezbollah and other terror groups on Israel’s northern and southern borders. Thousands of projectiles fell on Israel during the Second Lebanon War in the summer of 2006, and Hezbollah has since stockpiled tens of thousands of missiles it has said will be launched at Israeli cities in future fighting.
