Rockets Hit Northern Israel

A short while ago, a number of rockets hit the Western Galilee. No casualties were reported. The IDF responded by targeting the origins of the fire.

The IDF regards this incident as severe, and holds the Lebanese government and the Lebanese Army responsible for preventing any rocket fire toward Israel.

The IDF Northern Command is operationally prepared, and conducting an ongoing situation assessment in light of the incident.

On August 2010 Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) fired at IDF soldiers working inside Israeli territory. Despite having coordinated with the LAF via UNIFIL (the UN peacekeeping force), the IDF was fired upon which resulted in the death of Lt. Col. (res.) Dov Hariri, 45, and the serious wounding of another IDF soldier, Capt. Ezra Lakia. During 2009, 11 incidents of additional terrorist activity were reported in the region.
