The Israel Defense Forces launched an interceptive missile at an unidentified object flying near the Upper Galilee city of Safed on Sunday afternoon.
No warning sirens were activated in the area.
A subsequent investigation revealed that it was not a hostile aircraft and posed no threat to Israeli residents.
“No attack was carried out from Lebanese territory,” the IDF confirmed.
The IDF Northern Command headquarters is in Safed.
Earlier on Sunday, the IDF hit targets in southern Lebanon with artillery, after Hezbollah terrorists there fired mortars at the Jewish state.
There were no casualties in the Hezbollah attack.
The mortar shells struck in the contested Mount Dov area close to the Blue Line, the 75-mile border with Lebanon. U.N. cartographers demarcated it in 2000 to verify Israel’s withdrawal from the Land of the Cedars.
Hezbollah claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attack, saying it targeted three Israeli military sites in solidarity with the “Palestinian resistance.”
