The IDF says there were 35 rockets fired in this morning’s barrage from Lebanon on Kiryat Shmona and the nearby community of Kfar Szold.

Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack.

Several of the rockets were intercepted, the IDF says, while others impacted the area, causing damage in Kiryat Shmona and sparking a fire near Kfar Szold.

In response, fighter jets hit several sites belonging to the terror group in Odaisseh and Kafr Kila, the military says. The IDF says it also shelled the launch sites with artillery.
