Israel has reportedly fired at least seventeen rockets into southern Lebanon within minutes after being hit by rockets from the country.
"Between one and three rockets were launched from an area four kilometers west of the village of Shebaa and Israel responded within a minute with four rockets that landed north of Ghajar," AFP quoted a Lebanese security official as saying.
Lebanon's LBC TV confirmed the firing of two rockets from Hassbia in southern Lebanon into the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmouna, saying Israel is responding with continuous rocket fire.
Israeli jets violated Lebanese airspace following the incident.
Hezbollah and Palestinian factions have ruled out any involvement in the rocket firing and there is speculation that people angry over the Israeli war on Gaza have launched the attacks.
The war spreads... False flag rockets?.. You betcha!
