Police say two people in Kiryat Shmona have been wounded by shrapnel and a house suffered damage after a missile attack nearby.

The two are identified by Channel 12 news as children who were in a bomb shelter as sirens sounded in the city, which has largely been evacuated.

The IDF says that a missile was launched from Lebanon at a military post near Misgav Am, setting off sirens in Kiryat Shmona.

Officers and sappers are at the scene to clear the shrapnel, police add.

The army says it has returned fire toward the source of the launch.
