Al Jazeera's correspondent reported that sirens sounded in the settlements of Kiryat Shmona and Margaliot in the Upper Galilee near the border with southern Lebanon, at a time when Israeli media reported that several missiles fell in open areas in Margaliot and Rechis Ramim in the Upper Galilee as well.

The Lebanese Hezbollah announced that it had targeted a gathering of Israeli soldiers in the vicinity of the Ramim barracks and the Zabdin barracks in the occupied Shebaa Farms, and achieved direct hits.

Al Jazeera's correspondent also reported that two missiles were fired at an Israeli position in the occupied Kfar Shuba hills in southern Lebanon.

He added that Israeli artillery bombed the vicinity of the towns of Aita al-Shaab and Ramia in southern Lebanon.

The Israeli army announced - today, Sunday - that it had detected a number of missiles launched from southern Lebanon, towards northern border areas, and the private Israeli Channel 12 said that the army had monitored the landing of several missiles in open areas in Margaliot and Rechis Ramim in the Upper Galilee, without talk of injuries or damage. This was preceded by the sounding of sirens in a number of border areas with Lebanon.

The Israeli army announced several times during the past 48 hours that it had detected missiles launched from southern Lebanon towards northern Israel.

It is noteworthy that, since October 8, the Israeli-Lebanese border has witnessed an exchange of fire between the Israeli army on the one hand, and Hezbollah and Palestinian factions on the other hand, which led to deaths and injuries on both sides of the border.

Recently, threats have escalated from Israeli officials to expand attacks on Lebanese territory if Hezbollah fighters do not withdraw away from the border with northern Israel.
