Northern Israel reportedly hit by rocket from Lebanon

(JNS.org) While tensions in the region remained high due to the Syrian civil war, residents of Metula in northern Israel said they heard a blast late Sunday night that reportedly came from a rocket fired from Lebanon.

The rocket was launched at Israel from the area of Marjayoun, a Lebanese town situated about six miles from the Israeli border, the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Mayadeen media network reported.

In Lebanon on Sunday, a pair of rockets hit a car dealership and a residential building in Hezbollah strongholds in south Beirut.
