Israeli military reports 30 rockets fired from Lebanon into northern Israel
Tensions rise as Israeli forces exchange fire with Hezbollah along Lebanon-Israel border, as Israeli offensive in Gaza continues

JERUSALEM (AA) - The Israeli military announced late Thursday that at least 30 rockets fell in the Upper Galilee in northern Israel, rockets it said were launched from southern Lebanon, while alarm sirens sounded in the area.
Israeli army radio said that about 30 rockets fell in an open area in Mount Hermon, in the Upper Galilee, without any injuries.
On Thursday, the intensity of cross-border shelling between the Israeli army and the Lebanese Hezbollah party increased along the borders and nearby areas between the two sides.
On the same day, the Israeli army announced the hitting of a series of Hezbollah-affiliated targets in southern Lebanon, as well as an Israeli drone strike on a car in the southern city of Nabatieh.
Tension has escalated along the border between Lebanon and Israel amid intermittent exchange of fire between Israeli forces and Hezbollah since early October, in the deadliest clashes since the two sides fought a full-scale war in 2006.
The border tension comes amid an Israeli military offensive in the Gaza Strip since Oct. 7 that has since killed at least 27,840 people and injured 67,317 others.
