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.
