Senior Israeli military officers hold a meeting in Israel with the head of a United Nations peacekeeping force in Lebanon, following a major rocket attack yesterday on northern Israel and Israeli airstrikes in response.

The head of the IDF Northern Command, Maj. Gen. Ori Gordin, and the head of the International Cooperation Division, Brig. Gen. Efi Defrin, meet with UNIFIL Force Commander Maj. Gen. Aroldo Lázaro Sáenz to discuss “the recent security incidents along the border with Lebanon,” the military says.

Gordin “emphasized the responsibility of the state of Lebanon and its army for any terror activity that takes place in its territory from its territory,” the IDF adds.
