The IDF fired dozens of artillery shells toward targets in southern Lebanon after a rocket was fired into northern Israel yesterday, near the border town of Shlomi.

IDF spokesperson Brig. Gen. Ran Kohav tweeted, “Reacting to a rocket fired tonight from Lebanon, our artillery fighters struck back with dozens of artillery shells in order to make it clear to those on the other side that we do not intend to accept any violation of Israeli sovereignty."
