JERUSALEM: Heavy fire from Lebanon targeted northern Israel on Saturday, the Israeli military said, adding it had responded by striking a "terrorist cell" that took part in the launches.

Shortly after rocket sirens sounded across northern Israel, the military said that "approximately 40 launches from Lebanon toward the area of Meron in northern Israel were identified".
