BEIRUT: Two rockets were fired at Israel from south Lebanon Monday night, in the fourth such attack in as many days, security sources said.

The rockets were launched from an area near the southern port city of Tyre. Israeli media reported that the projectiles hit the Jewish state, prompting Israeli artillery to shell the launch site.

The consecutive rocket attacks come as Israel continued its offensive against the Gaza Strip, which has killed more than 180 people since it began last week.

Israel has carried out over 1,000 airstrikes on the coastal enclave, while Palestinian militants in the strip have retaliated by firing salvos of rockets on cities across Israel including Occupied Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
