Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will hold a meeting in connection with the rocket attacks from Lebanon in the north of the country. The Israeli prime minister’s office said on Friday, August 6.
“The prime minister will shortly hold a meeting with Defense Minister [Beni Gantz], [Israel Defense Forces Chief of General Staff Aviv Kohavi] and security leadership,” the statement said.
Earlier in the day, it was reported that air-raid sirens warning of rocket attacks sounded in northern Israel. The Israeli army press service stressed that this was the second incident in a week.
The day before, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) attacked Lebanese infrastructure used for terrorist purposes. The strikes allegedly targeted the hideouts of radical Palestinian groups that are firing rockets into Israeli settlements.
On Wednesday, August 4, the Israel Defense Forces press office reported that artillery attacked targets along the border with Lebanon three times in response to three rockets fired into Jewish territory. It was specified that two of the rockets landed in Israel and one in Lebanon.
Air-raid sirens went off in the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmonah near the border with Lebanon in response to the threat of fire. Sirens were also sounded in Kfar Giladi and Tel-Hai. Residents of these communities were urged to remain in protected areas.
