Israelis respond to Lebanon rocket fire

October 28, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A rocket fired from Lebanon struck inside northern Israel without causing damage or injury, and Israel responded with artillery fire, the Israeli military and a Lebanese security source said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said Israel was treating the shooting along the border "very seriously" and that it held the Lebanese government responsible.

There were no reports of casualties from the rocket, which security sources said slammed into an open area near the northern Israeli border town of Kiryat Shemona, or from Israel's subsequent artillery fire at Lebanon.
