IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi warns Lebanon that Israel will respond to any rocket fire emanating from the neighboring country.
“We will respond and attack, openly or covertly, to any violation of our sovereignty,” says Kohavi.
Early Tuesday morning, two rockets were fired at northern Israel from Lebanon, setting off warning sirens in the Western Galilee region, the Israel Defense Forces said. The army fired artillery shells at the source of the launches in response.
One of the rockets was intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, while the second projectile fell in an open area near the coast, the IDF said. There were no reports of injuries or damage, and the army said it had no special instructions for residents of the region.
