Rockets fired from Lebanon into Israel

A significant escalation amid regional tensions over Israeli police raids at the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem saw dozens of rockets fired from Lebanon into Israel on Thursday, according to the Israeli military.


According to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), 34 rockets were fired from Lebanese territory into Israeli territory; most were intercepted, but six made it to Israel.


It was the most significant attack since a war between the two nations in 2006, which claimed the lives of almost 1,200 Lebanese and 165 Israelis.


Social media users shared videos of rockets tearing through the sky over northern Israel and the distant sounds of explosions.


After the barrage, the nation closed its northern airspace. There were no confirmed fatalities; it is currently unknown which Lebanese organisation fired the missiles.


The Lebanese army acknowledged that several rockets were shot from the nation's south but could not identify the shooters. In the neighbourhood of the Lebanese villages of Zibqin and Qlaileh, it was reported on Twitter that a unit had discovered "missile launchers and a number of rockets intended for launch" and was "currently working to dismantle them.”

Hezbollah hasn't yet responded to the incident in any way. It occurred the day after Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the Palestinian militant organisation Hamas, flew into Beirut for talks with Hezbollah representatives.


After Israeli police raided the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem twice on Wednesday during Palestinian worshippers' prayers for the Ramadan holy month, tensions in the area are at an all-time high.
