The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon says that the Israel-Lebanon border is now calm after the Israeli army said that six rockets were fired toward the Jewish state, but failed to cross the border.

“UNIFIL detected firing of rockets from the general area of Rashaya Al Foukhar north of Kfar Chouba in S. Lebanon,” the UN observer force tweets, noting that IDF returned artillery fire at the location from where rockets originated.

“The situation in the area is now calm,” the group says.
