    Explosions have been heard from near the Israel-Lebanon border.

    Police spokesperson Luba Samri said that two rockets landed in open fields close to the north-west city of Nahariya, causing air raid sirens across northern Israel to go off.

    However, the Israeli Defence Force said the rockets “fell outside of Israeli territory”.

    The organisation also reported that “one rocket [was] intercepted between Acre and Nahariya,” stating that the projectile was “shot down by the Iron Dome missile defence system.”

    The IDF has claimed that the attack had been carried out by “Global Jihad terrorists,” but that it that constituted a “one-time event, not a general escalation.”

    Eli Bean, director of Magen David Adom, reportedly told Army Radio: “There are no casualties. There are no indications or reports of anything hitting any populated area.”

    Lebanon’s state-controlled news outlet said the projectiles were fired from the village of Housh.

    The IDF warned that citizens in the area should stay in safe rooms, while the Jerusalem Post has reported that all flights into and out of the north have been suspended.
