Israeli police say rockets fired from Lebanon

JERUSALEM — Israeli police say two rockets fired from Lebanon have landed in northern Israel.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says there were no injuries and no damage caused from Sunday's rocket fire. Witnesses reported hearing a pair of large explosions.

The Israel-Lebanon border has remained mostly quiet since a monthlong war in the summer of 2006 between Israel and Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon. There have been sporadic outbursts of violence, most recently earlier this month when a Lebanese army sniper killed an Israeli soldier.

In the most serious incident, Lebanese forces killed a high-ranking Israeli officer in 2010. Israel responded with artillery fire that killed three Lebanese. Given the years of enmity between the two countries, even the smallest incident raises the risk of sparking a wider conflagration.
