The Hezbollah terror group claims responsibility for the rocket barrage on Kiryat Shmona.

In a statement, Hezbollah says it fired dozens of rockets at the city in response to a deadly Israeli strike on southern Lebanon’s Mays al-Jabal.

Damage was caused in the barrage on the largely evacuated city, and a man was slightly wounded by shrapnel.
