Four Rockets Fired At Israel From Lebanon
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to "strike anyone who tries to harm us" after four rockets were fired towards northern Israel from Lebanon.
None of them landed in the territory, according to military officials, and no-one was hurt.
"Anyone who harms us, or tries to harm us, should know - we will strike them," the PM said in a televised address.
Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner said the rockets were from a location south of the Lebanese port city of Tyre.
And one of them was intercepted by Israel's "Iron Dome" defence system.
He said the others did not land in Israel. Earlier reports said two rockets came down in an open area near the border town of Nahariya.
There was some minor damage to a vehicle and a street.
Mr Lerner said that was probably caused by falling debris from the rocket defence system.
Witnesses reported hearing explosions and sirens wailing close to Nahariya.
Keinan Engel from the town told Israel Radio he heard a siren following a loud boom nearby.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
The Israeli military said it was investigating and officials accused "global jihad" elements of being behind the attack, referring to groups either linked to or inspired by al Qaeda.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity under military guidelines.
South Lebanon, the scene of bitter fighting between Israel and Lebanese militant Hizbollah guerrillas in 2006, is considered a Hizbollah stronghold
There are also Palestinian radical groups and Islamic militants that could also provoke a border incident. Several such incidents in the past were claimed by radical Palestinian groups.
The Israel-Lebanon border has remained very quiet since Israel and Hizbollah militants fought each other in a month-long war seven years ago.
Sporadic incidents of rocket fire have taken place since.
But tensions have remained high, especially as Hizbollah has become increasingly involved in the civil war in neighbouring Syria.
Israel fears that Syria will transfer sophisticated weapons to Hizbollah.
