The sirens heard earlier this evening in the Galilee Panhandle were triggered by more than 30 rockets that were fired from Lebanon.

Most of the rockets were either shot down by the Iron Dome missile defense system or were allowed to land in open areas.

There are no immediate reports of injuries or damages.

This is the second day in a row that such a large barrage of rockets has been fired from Lebanon into Israel, in a further sign of escalation.

Hezbollah claims responsibility for the barrage, saying it fired dozens of Katyusha rockets.

In a statement, the terror group claims to have targeted the IDF’s Kela base in the Golan Heights, although sirens sounded in Kiryat Shmona — some 15 kilometers away — and other nearby communities.
