The mayor of the northern city of Nahariya, Ronen Marelly, says the city is opening public bomb shelters following barrages of rockets launched from southern Lebanon at northern Israel.

None of the rockets were aimed at Nahariya, and incoming rocket sirens did not sound there.

Marelly says the city is opening the public shelters regardless, anticipating further attacks.
