A barrage of some 75 rockets was launched from Lebanon at northern Israel a short while ago, the military says.

According to the IDF, dozens of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it treated two people in good condition after they were wounded by one of the rocket impacts in the Upper Galilee. The pair, men in their 60s, were taken to Ziv Hospital in Safed, MDA says.

The barrage is one of the largest carried out by Hezbollah on northern Israel amid the war.

Sirens had sounded in Katzrin in the central Golan Heights and several towns near the Lebanon border.

Earlier today, the IDF says it struck a Hezbollah rocket launcher in southern Lebanon’s Yaroun that was primed for an attack on Israel.
