Bomb shelters to open on Lebanese border after rocket fire

Several local councils on the Lebanese border are ordering the opening of public bomb shelters after three rockets are fired at the Upper Galilee on Saturday.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit says it has not changed its safety instructions to residents of the north. The opening of the shelters is being done at the behest of local officials.

One of the rockets landed in a warehouse in a northern village, another in an open field and the third in Lebanon.

Hamas is reporting that it is responsible for the rocket fire, which Israeli sources already noted did not appear to be launched by the Lebanese group Hezbollah.

The IDF is responding with artillery fire directed at the location from which the rockets were launched.
