Israeli troops opened artillery fire on southern Lebanon on Thursday following a cross-border rocket attack on northern Israel, an army spokeswoman said.

At least three Katyusha rockets fell around the northern Israeli border town of Nahariya in the morning, wounding two persons, Israeli police earlier said. Israeli army fired back with at least six artillery shells. No casualties have been reported so far.

“I can confirm that we are firing back at an area from where the rockets have been fired,” the spokeswoman said.

It is still unclear who fired the rockets from Lebanon for the first time since Israel launched on December 27 a major ground offensive in the Gaza Strip aimed at stopping frequent rocket attacks on Israeli territory by Palestinian militants.

Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, which controls Gaza, has denied responsibility for the attack from Lebanon.
