IDF artillery forces fired a salvo of shells and flares at source of recent rocket attack from Lebanon on Monday night, the military said.

It was the fourth time rockets have been fired from Lebanon since the start of a week-old Israeli offensive against Palestinian terrorists firing rockets at Israel from Gaza.


In the early hours of Monday morning around 12:30 a.m., Code Red sirens blared in Israel's northern city of Nahariyah as two Katyusha rockets launched from Lebanon landed in open territory.

IDF artillery responded by targeting the launch site in Lebanon.

That rockets followed a previous rocket from Syria that was fired and landed in an open area of the Golan Heights earlier on Sunday night. No injuries or damage were reported.

The IDF reported that the rocket was deliberately fired from Syria at Israel.

Meanwhile in the country's south, Code Red sirens continued to blare in southern communities as rocket as Egypt announced that the government in Cairo had proposed a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip according to which the two sides would end “hostilities” as of 9 a.m. Tuesday.
