BEIRUT: A senior Lebanese security official says two rockets have been fired from Lebanon toward Israel but fell short.
The official says the rockets were fired from southern Lebanon on Wednesday. They landed near the border on Lebanese territory, the official said. He did not say who fired them.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with military regulations.
This week Lebanese officials found and disarmed two rockets aimed at Israel.
The two incidents coincide with a weeklong conflict between Hamas militants in Gaza and Israeli forces.
In 2008, during the last Israeli offensive there, several rockets were fired from Lebanon at Israel, provoking a brief Israeli artillery response.
South Lebanon is considered a stronghold of Hezbollah militants, who fought Israel to a stalemate in 2006.
