Israel fired three rockets on south Lebanon on Saturday, the Lebanese army said, after a rocket slammed into Israeli territory. Israeli public radio said flying glass when the rocket landed not far from the town of Maalot near the Lebanese border lightly injured a woman.
In Lebanon, panicked residents were fleeing the border area, AFP reported. According to press reports, one of the rockets blew up at a non-residential area inside Lebanese territory.
Lebanon's National News Agency said 6 Israeli shells landed between al-Huniyeh and al-Mansouri. Reports said that UNIFIL did not monitor any rocket launching from south Lebanon. Hizbullah denied its knowledge of the firing from south Lebanon towards Israel.
U.N. peacekeeping troops have set up checkpoints and were preventing people from heading into the area of the clashes, residents said, according to Naharnet.
