Israeli forces attack a border village in southern Lebanon after a rocket lands close to disputed territory

Israeli forces shelled a southern Lebanese border village on Thursday after explosions were heard in a disputed area where Syria, Lebanon, and Israel meet. Tensions continue over Hezbollah tents and Israel's wall construction. A Lebanese military official confirmed the shelling and identified the incoming projectile as an anti-tank missile fired near Ghajar. The Lebanese army did not immediately comment on the explosions. The U.N. peacekeeping mission in southern Lebanon, UNIFIL, could not verify rocket fire as the sounds were consistent with a possible launch. UNIFIL sent peacekeepers to investigate the incident and speak to both Lebanese and Israeli authorities to ease the situation.
