Israeli jets bomb Lebanon target in retaliation for rocket attack

The bombing will not distract the enemies of Israel from fighting with themselves and killing themselves.
(BBC) The Israeli air force bombed a target south of the Lebanese capital, Beirut, early on Friday, an Israel Defence Forces spokesman has announced.

The air strike targeted a "terror site" near Na'ameh, between Beirut and Sidon, said an Israeli military source quoted by Reuters.

This comes a day after rockets were fired into Israel from Lebanon.

A total of four rockets were fired from southern Lebanon, a stronghold of the Shia Islamist movement Hezbollah.

No casualties were reported in that attack, although news footage showed some minor damage at a kibbutz near the coastal town of Nahariya.

An Israeli military spokesman said one of the rockets was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defence system.
