Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says it carried out preemptive artillery shelling in southern Lebanon this morning, amid repeated attacks by the Hezbollah terror group.

A short while later, a number of rockets and mortars were fired from Lebanon at the northern communities of Arab al-Aramshe and Bar’am, as well as the Biranit base.

No injuries are caused in the attacks, but a fire was sparked near the army base, the IDF says.

The IDF says it is striking the sources of the rocket fire.
