The Israel Defense Forces says nine rockets were launched from Lebanon at the Kiryat Shmona area in northern Israel less than an hour ago.

Four were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, the IDF says.

At least one rocket landed in an open area inside Kiryat Shmona, causing no injuries or damage.

Separately, the IDF says it carried out a drone strike against a terror cell launching mortars from Lebanon at the Tel Turmus area in northern Israel, close to Mount Dov.

The IDF also says more anti-tank guided missiles were fired from Lebanon, targeting the northern towns of Metula, Malkia, and Manara.

The army says it is responding with artillery shelling at the launch sites.
