Israel National News reported:
At least four rockets were fired from Lebanon Thursday afternoon, with at least one confirmed as having struck in the area of Nahariya.
IDF Radio reported that bomb shelters in the northern city of Akko (Acre) have been opened for public use, and the IDF is urging residents of the north to remain close to shelters.
Unconfirmed Lebanese media sources have claimed the rockets were fired from somewhere near the Lebanese city of Tyre.
According to initial reports, one rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, while two others struck in “open areas.”
While there have been several incidents in which mortars were fired into Israel’s north in recent months from Syria, today’s explosions are being reported in the western end of the northern border, opposite Lebanon.
