The Israel Defense Forces says that several mortars were fired recently at Israel from Lebanon, setting off air raid sirens in the border town of Shtula, APA reports citing The Times of Israel.

The mortars fell in open areas and no injuries were reported, the IDF says.

The military responds by shelling the terror cell that carried out the launch, it adds.

The IDF says that separately a tank struck a terror cell in south Lebanon which was attempting to fire anti-tank missiles into Israel near Shtula.

In addition, a number of mortars were fired toward Shumra in the Western Galilee, and the IDF fired back at the source, it says.
