The Israel Defense Forces says seven soldiers were lightly wounded in a mortar attack from Lebanon on the Manara area earlier today.

All the soldiers were taken to a hospital for treatment.

The military also says some 15 rockets were fired from Lebanon at northern Israel in the last hour.

Four projectiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, while the rest landed in open areas, causing no injuries or damage.

Troops are responding with artillery shelling against the sources of the rocket fire, the IDF says.

Meanwhile, the Hamas terror group says that its Lebanon branch launched a barrage of rockets at Haifa, Nahariya and nearby towns on the Lebanon border.
