IDF says sirens in Acre caused by interceptor rocket, fear of shrapnel

The siren that sounded in Acre earlier was due to an interceptor missile being launched at rockets fired from Lebanon at the Western Galilee, the IDF says.

The rockets were not aimed at Acre, and the siren sounded due to fears of Iron Dome shrapnel falling on the city.

The IDF says it shelled the source of the rocket fire with artillery.
