Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon held a consultation with IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz on Friday following the four rockets fired at the western Galilee and the IAF response to it.

"The IDF attacked a terrorist target in Lebanon last night, south of Beirut. The strike is a response to the rocket fire yesterday afternoon at the western Galilee," he said.

"The state of Israel sees the Lebanese government as responsible to what happens in its territory and will not allow any firing or provocation at it," he added. "We will not allow anyone to disrupt the lives of our civilians."
