Rockets fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel
Despite two of the rockets landing in an open field there are believed to be no casualties
Two rockets have been fired from Lebanon to northern Israel, according to police.
Lebanon's state-run news agency reported three rockets were fired from the village of Housh. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
No one was injured in the incident and initial reports indicated the two rockets landed in open fields, causing no damage. Authorities said a third apparently was shot down by the Iron Dome missile defence system.
Witnesses reported hearing explosions and sirens wailing near the coastal city of Nahariya. Keinan Engel from Nahariya told Israel Radio that he heard the siren follow a loud boom nearby. The Israeli military said it was investigating.
The Israel-Lebanon border has remained quite since Israel and Hezbollah guerrillas battled in a month-long war in 2006, although sporadic incidents of rocket fire have taken place since.
The Israel military are reportedly investigating.
