The rate of rocket fire from Lebanon at northern Israel has steadily increased in recent months, according to data published by Army Radio.

In January, some 334 rockets were launched at the north, mostly by the Hezbollah terror group. In February, that number rose to 534.

In March, the number of rockets fired at northern Israel soared to 746, and similarly, in April, 744 rockets were launched, according to the report

The data apparently does not include drones and anti-tank missiles fired by Hezbollah.

The report also details the number of rockets fired from Gaza at southern Israel in recent months, according to which 357 were fired in January, 165 in February, 104 in March, and 113 in April.
