Israel shells south Lebanon as rocket lands in Galilee


Israeli artillery shelling on Sunday targeting the outskirts of the southern Lebanese border towns of Shihin, Umm al-Tout, Halta and Kfarshouba.

The Israeli army radio meanwhile said a rocket fired from south Lebanon landed in an open area in the Western Galilee in northern Israel.

Since Hamas' October 7 attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip, Lebanon's southern border has seen intensifying tit-for-tat exchanges, mainly between Israel and Hezbollah, an ally of the Palestinian group, stoking fears of a broader conflagration.

Israeli fire has killed at least 69 Hezbollah fighters since last month as well as at least 11 civilians and 12 other combatants.

At least six soldiers and two civilians have been killed in northern Israel.
