Israel shells south Lebanon after rocket attack

Israel shells south Lebanon after rocket attack

Lebanese security officials say the Israeli army has fired eight shells at southern Lebanon after rockets were fired into northern Israel.
This is the second such exchange since Israel launched an offensive in Gaza on its southern flank on Dec. 27 and threatens to ignite a second front in the north.
The area has been largely quiet since the 2006 Lebanon-Hezbollah summer war.
The Lebanese officials say several rockets were fired Wednesday and at least one fell short inside Lebanon. Israeli police say the rockets caused no injuries or damage, but residents were sent to bomb shelters.
The Lebanese officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak to the press.
