The Israel Defense Forces says 34 rockets were launched from southern Lebanon at the Western and Upper Galilee earlier.

According to the IDF, the Iron Dome air defense system intercepted 25 of the projectiles.

At least five rockets impacted in Israeli territory, while the locations of the remaining four are still unknown, the IDF adds.

The rocket impacts caused two minor injuries and some damage.

There are no special instructions for civilians following the unprecedented attack, the IDF’s Home Front Command says.
