Rocket fired from Lebanon hits northern Israel: army 

Israeli soldiers during clashes with Palestinian demonstrators in the West Bank village of Silwad on August 22, 2104A rocket fired from Lebanese territory hit northern Israel late Saturday, the army said on the 47th day of a war against the Islamist movement Hamas in and around Gaza. “The rocket that was fired from Lebanon hit the Upper Galilee,” the army said in a statement, correcting a previous communique that said the rocket had hit east of Acre. A Lebanese security source said the rocket was fired from Dheira, three kilometres (nearly two miles) from the border with Israel. In mid-July, at least nine rockets were fired from Lebanon at the Jewish state, prompting Israel to retaliate with artillery fire.
