Residents of the northern city of Safed report that Israeli air defense systems are engaging projectiles over the area.

It is unclear if rockets were fired at the area, or a possible drone attack. Sirens did not sound in Safed or nearby towns.

Safed houses the IDF Northern Command headquarters, and a Patriot system is stationed in the area.

There is no immediate comment from the Israeli military on the incident.

Earlier, Hezbollah fired a number of rockets at IDF border positions in “solidarity” with Hamas. the IDF responded with artillery fire.

The incidents spark fears the conflict could spread to a second front.
