Sirens sound across Galilee, at least one projectile intercepted; Lebanese terror group earlier issued statement saying it will support ‘all measures’ taken by Palestinian groups.
Several rockets were fired from southern Lebanon on Thursday afternoon with at least one intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system over northern Israel, the military said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the launches came just hours after Lebanon’s Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah said it would support “all measures” Palestinian groups may take against Israel after clashes at the flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Incoming rocket sirens first sounded in the towns of Betzet and Shlomi in the Western Galilee close to the border with Lebanon. The Israel Defense Forces said one rocket was identified and intercepted by the Iron Dome. Shortly afterward, sirens continued to sound in other towns across the area.
