The IDF says one projectile was intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, while another five landed in open areas, causing no damage.

Separately, another anti-tank guided missile was fired from Lebanon, and gunfire was heard near Zar’it, the IDF says.

It adds that it is responding with artillery shelling at the sources of the rocket, missile, and gunfire attacks.
