Israeli Army Responds With Artillery To New Rocket Attack From Lebanon (Videos, Photos)

On August 4, three rockets were launched from South Lebanon, with one failing midway and two landing in Israeli territory.

A fire broken out in an open area in the settlement of Kiryat Shmona where one of the rockets landed. Israel’s Magen David Adom ambulance service said that there were no casualties as a result of the attack.

On Twitter, the Israeli Defense Forces announced that it had responded to the attack with a series of artillery strikes on South Lebanon.

According to Ali Shoeib, a reporter of the Hezbollah-affiliated al-Manar TV, at least six 155 mm artillery shells landed in the Kiam Valley in South Lebanon. No losses were reported. The rockets were launched from the area.

Israeli defense officials speculate that Hezbollah was not behind the rocket attack, rather Palestinian militant factions, per the Israeli daily Haaretz.

This was not the first such attack this year. During the Israeli attack on the Palestinian Gaza Strip last May, four rocket attacks from Lebanon targeted northern Israel. A fifth attack took place on July 20 following a series of Israeli strikes on the northern Syrian governorate of Aleppo.

The new attack may be related to the current escalation between Israel and Iran, which began following the July 30 drone attack on the MERCER STREET tanker in the Arabian Sea. The attack itself was reportedly a response to the July 21 Israeli strikes on the central Syrian governorate of Homs.
