Three rockets fired from south Lebanon hit northern Israel, triggering retaliatory artillery fire on the Lebanese border village of Zebqin, a security source told The Daily StarSaturday.

Sirens resounded across the Israeli region of Nahariya after three rockets were fired from the valley of Qlayleh in south Lebanon. The incident came one day after rockets were fired on Israel from the southern region of Hasbaya.   

AFP quoted the Israeli military as saying that two rockets fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel late on Saturday. No casualties were reported, the military said.

"Two rockets fired from Lebanon hit uninhabited areas in the Nahariya region," a coastal town around 12 kilometres (seven miles) from the border with Lebanon, an army spokeswoman told AFP.
