They said gunners of Hizbullah fired rockets and artillery rounds at two Israeli positions in the area near the border between Lebanon and Israel. The Lebanese fighters also fired an anti-tank missile at an Israeli base outside of the Shebaa Farms region, for the first time since April 2002.
There were no reports of casualties, Israel Army said.
Witnesses and security sources said Israel responded with two air strikes on the edges of the Lebanese border village of Kfar Shouba and shelled the outskirts of several other villages.
Israeli helicopters were deployed at the scene and artillery batteries were returning fire, the Army Radio added. (Albawaba.com)
