BREAKING NEWS – Three Lebanese missiles reportedly hit Israel

Three rockets were launched from Lebanon toward northern Israel on Thursday but landed in the Mediterranean Sea, causing no damage or casualties, the Israeli military said. The rocket firing threatened to open a new front in the escalating fighting between Israel and the militant Palestinian Hamas group in Gaza.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) on Thursday said three rockets were fired from Lebanon into the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of northern Israel in a Twitter post.

The IDF gave no details of who fired them. But two sources close to Israel’s arch-enemy Hezbollah told the AFP the Lebanese Shiite group had no link to the incident.

“A short while ago, three rockets were fired from Lebanon into the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of the Galilee,” Israel’s army said in a statement. “According to protocol no sirens were sounded”.
