Three rockets fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel in the area near the town of Nahariya, five miles south of the Lebanese border.
Two elderly women were lightly wounded by one of the rockets, according to Israeli medical staff.
Meanwhile, the UN aid agency says it has suspended its operations in Gaza because of the danger from Israeli forces.
