Israel: Four Rockets Fired From Lebanon

Israeli officials say four rockets were fired towards northern Israel from Lebanon but none landed in the country. There were no reports of injuries.

The Israeli military said its Iron Dome missile defense shield intercepted one of the rockets launched in Thursday's attack, while the others landed outside Israeli territory.

It blamed the attack on what it called "global jihad terrorists" operating near the Lebanese city of Tyre.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
