At least three rockets fired from Lebanon exploded in northern Israel today wounding two people, said police and medics, in an attack seen as linked to Israel’s offensive against Hamas Islamists in the Gaza Strip.
Israel hit back with artillery shells in what an Israeli military spokesman described as “a pinpoint response at the source of fire”.
It was not immediately clear whether Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrillas – against whom Israel fought a 2006 war – or Palestinians fired the rockets, presenting a new challenge to Israeli leaders who have waged attacks on Gaza for 13 days.
